Doral Road Remains Closed After Possible Sinkhole Ruptures Water Main

Crews were still working Tuesday to repair a water main that broke in Doral a day earlier, flooding a number of streets.

The Doral Police Department said traffic on Northwest 41st Street between 115th Avenue and Florida's Turnpike is shut down due to a water main break following a possible sinkhole.

Police urged motorists to avoid the area and to seek alternate routes as the northbound exit from the Turnpike remain closed and the southbound exit is only open to traffic going west on 41st Street.

A precautionary boil water order is in effect from NW 136th Place and NW 41st Street to 34th Street.

The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) said a contractor working in the Doral area struck a 24-inch water pipe. WASD crews are making repairs on-site.

"Once repairs are completed and water service is restored, all water used for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making ice, and washing dishes should be boiled until further notice prior to consumption," WASD said in a statement. "Water should be brought to a full rolling boil for at least one minute."

Miami Dade College has suspended all operations, including classes, at their West Campus located near the break until further notice.
