A stretch of Savage Road in West Ashley is temporarily closed while authorities repair a sewer line.

Savage Road closed at 9 a.m. between Etiwan Avenue and Savannah Highway, according to Charleston Water System spokeswoman Jenny Craft.

Traffic on the road is being rerouted down Etiwan Avenue toward Melrose Drive, she said.

Authorities expect to complete the repair later today.
