Crews are working to repair a 12-inch water break near 41st and Memorial. They worked through the night to try to get the 12-inch water main fixed.

The good news is nothing is flooded out there; the bad news is 75-80 businesses are without water Tuesday morning.

Crews were close to having it fixed early Tuesday morning but then a 12-inch valve twisted, so they had to basically restart at step five of the process.

The business haven't had water since Monday. The call for the water main break came in around 7 Monday morning.

Crews have been hard at work trying to get it fixed not only to open the road back up for traffic but also to get the water back on for these businesses.

Right now, crews are having to dig a bigger hole toward the fire hydrant to fix that valve.
