A break in a water main led to the closure Tuesday night of Waco at 10th Street.

The break was reported just before 6 p.m., a Sedgwick County emergency dispatch supervisor said. Waco was closed both directions at 10th.

Wichita city crews were not sure how long street will be closed. They were planning to work through the night to repair the break.

The closure may affect Wednesday morning’s commute, crew members said. If possible, they will try to have one lane open in each direction.

There were no further details about what may have caused the main to break.
