UPDATE(2): Section of Cameron Street closed due to water main break
CBS 21 has learned that officials on the scene of the water leak are taking few precautions during the overnight hours.
The break is on Cameron Street between Herr and Market Streets.
There is not a giant hole in the ground and water has been turned off in the area, so icing is not a major concern.
Crews will start work at 7 a.m. in the morning to fix the water main break.
Construction crews believe there will be almost 15 layers of concrete to go through until they can get to the damaged section of the pipe, which is at least 12 feet long.
Several blocks along Cameron Street in Harrisburg are closed because of a major water main break.
Crews have turned off the water in the area to repair the break. However, it should not affect water usage in homes or businesses in the area.
Crews on scene tell us they will be working continuing into tomorrow to fix the problem.
We have a crew on scene, and will update with more information.
