The southbound lane of Wall Street is closed between Main Street and Gerard Street in Huntington village due to water main repairs.

The Suffolk County Water Authority began work this morning after a small leak was found in the basement of Salon Mayan at 29 Wall St.

Tim Motz, a spokesman for SCWA, explained that businesses are typically tasked with maintaining their own service lines, but, because of the leak, SCWA workers responded earlier today to turn off water flow.

In the process, a culvert was broken, so SCWA workers were then tasked with fixing it, which required traffic on Wall Street to be diverted.

Motz said work is expected to be completed later today.

Ben Aharon, owner of Salon Mayan, said the salon, which is typically closed on Mondays, is expected to be open tomorrow.

It’s not “that big of a deal,” he said.
