Water main break closes portion on Lake Shore Blvd.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A water main break has shut down a portion of Lake Shore Boulevard in Cleveland.

Cleveland police say the road is closed between East 200th and East 206th streets.  That includes both east and west bound lanes.

The break, according to repair crews, is causing the road to collapse in some places and drivers should avoid the area.

Authorities said they expected the break to be fixed at some point this morning.
