TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa crews are working on several water breaks located in downtown, south and midtown Tulsa. As part of the "Open Tulsa Initiative," the city is now posting its internal report about active water line breaks online.

The report not only shows the time, location, and size of a break, but also includes plans for preventative maintenance or future repairs.

Two breaks are just across the street from each other near 51st and Richmond. Workers have been on scene since about 6 p.m. Tuesday. One break is in a 6-inch line on the south side of the street, the other to a 12-inch line on the north side. 

Water has been shut off as crews work. 

Nearby is a break to a 6-inch line near 61st and Evanston, close to the Southern Hills Country Club.

Another break is downtown near Archer and Main. Crews arrived to this line around 7 p.m. Tuesday and have had some trouble here. Every time they fix this line, it breaks, and then they have to begin working again.

It's going to to take crews anywhere from a few hours to a few days to fix these lines depending on their size.

One eastbound traffic lane has been blocked off.
