TULSA, OK --  A construction crew broke a 6-inch water line at the site of the new downtown Tulsa baseball park Thursday morning. 

Tulsa city officials say a crew had not shut off water to a soon-to-be-abandoned line before the crew began digging. 

The location is north of Brady between Elgin and Greenwood, just south of I-244. 

Take a look at the water geyser caused by the downtown break.   

Meanwhile, Tulsa Public Works crews are dealing with several other water line breaks caused by Thursday's cold weather. 

One break is in a 6-inch line in the 2600 block of South Pittsburg and another is a broken water line valve at the southwest corner of Ute and North Columbia.
