CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A busy section of North Tryon Street in north Charlotte is blocked while crews work to repair a broken water main.

The break happened early Thursday morning in the 2300 block of North Tryon Street near the intersection with 27th Street around 5 a.m.

Crews at the scene were forced to block both lanes of inbound North Tryon for repairs. As a result, the outbound lanes of North Tryon were split to allow incoming traffic access to uptown.

There is no estimate for when repairs will be completed.
