Falmouth police are advising motorists to avoid the area of 704 Main St. after a major water main break overnight.
The broken water main split the roadway, making it impassable to cars, according to a Falmouth police news release issued just after 5 a.m. this morning.
"Main Street in that area will be closed to all through traffic for the remainder of the day," police said.
