DENVER — Denver Water crews are working to repair a water main break that closed down the southbound lanes of Colorado Boulevard at Yale Avenue Thursday.

Jose Salas with Denver Water said an eight-inch line broke at the intersection. Photos from a 9NEWS viewer show a part of the road apparently buckled in. 

About five customers are without water -- most of them businesses, according to Salas.

Denver Water's paving contractor will work throughout the day Friday to repair the road.

Alternate routes are advised.
