SHALLOTTE — A water line break caused the closure of Bridgers Road on Tuesday afternoon.

A pipe that runs along the road burst about 4:15 p.m. A motorist who noticed water rising quickly from the ditch contacted town officials.

Shallotte Police Capt. Scott Branning said the road is expected to reopen after dark.
