MADISON (WKOW) — A part of North Sherman Avenue is shut down early Wednesday morning because of a large main break, according to Madison Water Utility.
Officials say both northbound lanes have been closed between Boyd and Schlimgen Avenues. They also say about a dozen homes on North Sherman Avenue are out of water while repair crews work on the main break, but nearby Shabazz High School and Sherman Middle School do have water.
They say water from the break caused a significant hole beneath part of the roadway.
Madison water officials expect repairs to take four to six hours.
