Cape Coral Police Department provides update on roads, water main break
According to a report issued by the Cape Coral Police Department this morning, the water main break affecting the area in northeast Cape Coral has been repaired, and there is a boil water notice in effect for the area. While there has been rumor that the boil water notice applies to most the city, that is not the case. The largest area affected is the northeast area around the 100 block of NE 16th Place.
There are a few other small areas under a boil water notice, but none of these were caused by the flooding. To see a map of areas under a boil water notice, visit capecops.com/flooding
City crews are still out surveying roads to determine the areas most affected. Currently, Burnt Store Road remains closed between Gulfstream Parkway and Durden Parkway, with traffic being rerouted along Old Burnt Store Road.
Chiquita Boulevard is also still experiencing lots of flooding, particularly at the Trafalgar Parkway intersection.
Once crews have finished their assessments, an update of the road situation will be provided. According to the National Weather Service, another 1-2 inches of rain for the next couple of hours is possible, preventing the draining of flood waters. Drivers are asked to again stay off the roads if possible.
