A residential street in Santa Rosa is back open Monday after crews finished repairing a broken water main.

The damage was reported about 4:30 a.m. on eastbound Chanate Road, between Terra Linda and Murdock drives, the city reported Monday afternoon.

City staff said around 4:45 p.m. that repairs were completed and the road was open.

Westbound traffic on Chanate has already been detoured for several months for a sewer replacement project. The detour is expected to last through late November.

The cause of the water main break hasn’t been identified. Three homes lost water until service was restored around 6 a.m.

Repairs are expected to continue through Monday evening and access to the area is closed on Chanate at the intersection of Humboldt Street.

The area will be accessible to those living within the closure, but other motorists will be redirected.
