Mutton Hollow has been reopened after a major water break that washed out the road.

The break that started it all on Mutton Hollow is fixed, but two blocks south is another break at the intersection of Adolph and Orchard, and another big break in Maple Heights behind TE Church.

Township Trustee Mike Bianconi said just as the water was coming back on early Friday morning, the two breaks knocked out water again for a majority of the Lansing and Wolfhurst area.

Bridgeport Schools were also closed.

Township Trustees in Mutton Hollow laid gravel down as a temporary fix so that families can start using the road again.

Bianconi said the county has applied for FEMA funding to permanently fix the road.

“Because we have to get a big wall put up there and stuff and that’s under FEMA and we’ve applied for some funds and we’ve been approved, but it’s a long process to get those FEMA funds to get that done,” said Bianconi.

Bianconi said crews from the township and the water department are exhausted, but are working as fast as they can.

He asks that families try to be patient.
