Wednesday evening, City of Lubbock work crews were dispatched to the scene of a water main break in East Lubbock. The water main break occurred at the intersection of 1st Street and MLK Blvd.

City officials say the crews will be working all night to make the needed repairs.

If you're in Lubbock, and you travel northbound on MLK Blvd. to Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport, you'll probably want to use IH-27 as an alternate route so you can avoid the construction.

There's no word on what caused the water main break.
