The stretch of Fourteenth Street South is a one-way northbound and is expected to reopen Monday morning. Residents and motorists are encouraged to find an alternate route, according to a news release issued by Moorhead city officials.

The leak, which officials said was believed to be caused by cold temperatures and aging pipes, forced MSUM buildings to go without water about noon Friday.

Water service was restored later Friday.

City crews planned to begin removing water and ice from the road surface today.
