City officials in Canton say Marietta Road from Cartersville Street to Harmon Circle will be closed until further notice due to a water line break.

Residents in the area are also under a water boil advisory until at least Wednesday afternoon, city utilities engineer David Hatabian said.

The water main break happened about 8 p.m. Monday.

Residents in the area should expect interruptions and loss of service until the repairs are completed, the city said in an alert.

The affected area includes Cartersville Street, McClain Street, Old Marietta Road and portions along Marietta Road. Crews were on the scene Tuesday working to restore service.

The water line developed a crack, Hatabian said. The pipe was relatively new and was installed around 2006, he said. “We are in the process of seeing how much damage there is,” Hatabian said. Updates will also be posted on the city of Canton website as they become available, he said.
