WYOMING, Mich. — Drivers using the intersection of 44th Street at Clyde Park Avenue were affected by a combination of mishaps Tuesday morning.

First, there were reports of wires down on 44th Street, then a water main break was reported at the same location. The break, it turned out, was in a two-inch pipe that served only one or a few addresses.

The westbound lanes of 44th Street were closed at Clyde Park Avenue for a time. Then the Wyoming Department of Public Works reconfigured work at the site so that one lane of traffic was flowing in each direction.
