KALAMAZOO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A portion of West Main Street near Kalamazoo was shut down Thursda so crews can repair a water main break.

Officials say a half-mile span of West Main Street is closed between Fletcher Avenue and North Berkley Street in Kalamazoo Township, just north of Western Michigan University’s campus.

Eastbound traffic should detour along Solon Street, Howard Street and Stadium Drive. Westbound traffic should detour along Berkley Street, Hilldale Avenue, Alamo Avenue and Nichols Road.
