SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Suffolk city officials on Monday said a contractor damaged a water main in the 1600 block of Holland Road/Route 58.

The crews that damaged the main were contracted for the Holland Road/Route 58 Roadway Improvement Project.

Around 6 p.m. Monday night, Suffolk said staff was working to isolate the damaged section of the 20-inch water transmission main.

Water service interruptions were expected in certain areas along Holland Road. The city released a map showing the affected area, which includes the 200 block of Sumner Avenue, 1600 block of Faulk Road, and portions of the 1600 block of Holland Road.
