EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The Evansville Water & Sewer Utility confirms crews are working to repair a water main break- hours after water flooded Bob Jones Way between SE 5th and 6th streets- rupturing part of the roadway.

EWSU crews arrived on the scene late Friday evening to perform a “valve check” to identify the issue. Officials say it is too early to know if there will be a boil advisory for the area or how many customers could be affected. Drivers are being asked to avoid the area as crews work to repair the break.

Eyewitness News was able to get footage of the water flowing over the streets from our reporter at the scene bringing updates.
