Water main break closes two Baltimore City schools

Paul Laurence Dunbar High School and National Academy Foundation Middle School are closed for students on Tuesday due to a water main break, Baltimore City schools officials said. Staff at both schools are expected to report as scheduled, officials said.

Baltimore Department of Public Works spokesman Kurt Kocher that a paving contractor on the 600 block of North Central Avenue hit a two-inch water service line connected to a medical center. He said that a 16-inch water main had to be shut down so the two-inch main could be fixed.

Kocher said repairs should be completed by early afternoon.
