Tulsa police and city water crews are asking drivers to avoid the intersection at 21st and 129th East Avenue. A-36-inch water line burst there around three Friday morning, bringing officers and a repair crew to the scene. “First step they said was to get the water shut off but then (workers) said the intersection is still going to be torn up for a considerable amount of time after that,” TPD Cpl. Matt Arnold said. Power was shut off to the area for worker safety. We're told the intersection will be a mess until repairs can be made.
