Crews are working to repair a water main break at a busy intersection in Aurora on Wednesday.
The southbound lanes of Peoria Street at Mississippi Avenue are closed, as is the right eastbound lane of Mississippi Ave. across the intersection.
Work to repair the break began shortly after the morning rush hour and is expected to last until the evening, Aurora Water said.
Drivers are asked to avoid the area if possible.
