You’ll want to avoid driving in the area of Regal at Third Avenue this morning. A 10-inch, cast-iron water main broke at about 6 a.m. today there. Three homes are without water as Water Department crews work to repair the problem. The water is expected to be back on at about noon.
Also, because of the topography of the area, water from the break has collected at the intersections from Third to Fifth avenues, Regal to Altamont. Drivers should use caution through these intersections.
