A water main break in Southington impacted an elementary school and roads.

According to Superintendent Tim Connellan, a water main break on Route 10 in front of Derynoski Elementary School forced the school to dismiss early.

The school dismissed at 1:30 p.m.

Route 10 is closed between Route 120 and Chestnut Street for the break.

According to Southington Police, detours will be in place on Main Street at the intersections of Meriden Avenue, Chestnut Street, and Bristol Street.

Old Turnpike Road will also be closed at Carter Lane and Southington Avenue.
