Ortega Highway reopens after water main break

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO – The Ortega (74) Highway reopened in both directions this morning.
The California Highway Patrol said one westbound lane was still closed between the 6- and 6.6-mile marker. The broken water main that caused the pavement to collapse on Saturday has been fixed, CHP officials said.

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO (CBS) ―

A broken water main and debris led to the closure Saturday of part of State Route 74, also known as the Ortega Highway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The road was closed from Grand Avenue in Lake Elsinore to the Nichols Institute in Orange County, the CHP reported.

The closure is due to a broken water main in Orange County that flooded the highway and caused the westbound lanes to cave in, according to the CHP.

Authorities also said storm debris is blocking the road.

The closure is expected to last two days, a CHP spokesperson said.
