UConn says a water main break near the Storrs campus is affecting multiple areas.  The problem could slow down traffic on the way to tonight’s men’s basketball game against Harvard

North Eagleville road is closed to through traffic for the remainder of today.

Before the game, people will be stationed in the area, directing traffic, but university officials say fans should allow extra time to get to the game.

So far, Gampel Pavilion’s bathrooms have water, and the sprinkler system is okay.

An outside contractor digging a hole for a new utility pole struck the main today.

Presently, crews are assessing the damage.

As a result, the Atwater Building is closed for at least the rest of the day. It houses labs for the Department of Pathobiology and Veterinary Sciences.

A notification on the schools web site says other buildings on campus could experience low water pressure.
