CUPERTINO – A water main break in Cupertino prompted the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office to close a major street and off-ramp from state Highway 85 and urge motorists to avoid the area for the next 24 hours, deputies reported.
The sheriff’s office reported on Twitter at about 4:45 p.m. that water from a broken main spread over the westbound lanes of Stevens Creek Boulevard in Cupertino, according to deputies.
Deputies have closed the westbound side of Stevens Creek and the southbound state Highway 85 off ramp to Stevens Creek for the next 24 hours.
The sheriff’s office placed traffic cones on the affected part of Stevens Creek and deputies were directing motorists away from the water-soaked westbound lanes.
