A driver’s license station in Topeka will reopen to customers Friday after a water line break flooded the office Thursday morning, causing it to close, Kansas Department of Revenue officials said.
Parts of the station at 300 S.W. 29th were reported flooded, and there was no running water.
As a result, customer service was shut down Thursday.
KDOR employees housed in the building were back at work Thursday afternoon.
However, the front area that serves customers seeking driver’s license services wasn’t to be ready until Friday.
“We very much appreciate everyone’s patience as we clean up from the flood,” said division of vehicles director David Harper. “The cold weather caused a pipe located in an outside wall to burst and flood the floor, but thankfully there was no damage to equipment.”
The commercial driver’s license office at 3907 S.W. Burlingame was available Thursday to process renewals for drivers whose license expired Thursday.
