A leaking water main in Ludington will be getting fixed this week. The work will begin Thursday at the intersection of Ludington Ave and South James Street. Due to its busy location and its proximity to the sanitary sewer, the council approved hiring Hallack Contracting, at Monday night's council meeting, to perform the repairs. Eastbound traffic on Ludington Ave will be detoured on Rath, east on Loomis and then north on Harrison. James Street will be closed. The cost of the repairs won't be known until the problem is determined.
