DENVER (CBS4)– Crews worked to repair a broken water main on Tuesday morning. They hoped to have the repairs completed by 10 p.m. Tuesday.

The 12-inch diameter water main broke Tuesday morning between 4th and 5th Avenues on Monaco.

Before crews could start digging, they had to let the main drain for a while.

Northbound lanes of Monaco were reduced to one lane. Some homes in the area were without water for a while.
