Early morning water main break in Wausau

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Crews were called to the 1200 Block of Kickbusch Street early Thursday morning for a water main break affecting several blocks in that area.

An official says it could cause some commute issues for students at a nearby school.

Crews with the department of public works are trying to stop the flow of water and clean up the mess on Kickbusch Street.  Officials are unsure what caused the breaks.

The break is in on the same street as Hawthorn Hills Elementary School.  Crews say it shouldn't affect the start of the school day; but Kickbusch, between 10th and 13th, will be shut down.    Drivers will be rerouted to Plumer Street.

A public works official says some houses in the area will have their water shut off until the main is fixed.  They believe it will take three to four hours to fix the problem.
