DENVER (CBS4)– Repairs have been made to a broke water main but delays remain in the area of Mississippi Avenue and Santa Fe Drive on Tuesday morning.

The 12-inch water main was repaired before 6 a.m. Tuesday but South Sheridan Boulevard will remain closed between West Arizona Avenue and West Mississippi Avenue until 2 p.m. while crews clean the area and repave the damaged road.

Denver Water said the break occurred because of a failure on a weak section of the pipe which was originally installed in 1949. The age of the pipe along with corrosion and water flow all contributed to the break.
