TROY -- Crews in Troy are working to repair a major water main break on Wednesday.
It happened along sixth avenue in the area of Jacob and Federal Streets, closing the street to traffic. Officials say they expect to have the break repaired by the end of the day, but could not give an exact timetable for when the road may reopen.
Authorities say the combination of frost and old pipes may have led to the break. They say it has not affected drinking water.
