A water main break has temporarily closed a portion of Sheridan road in Pekin.
The break happened near the intersection of Sheridan and Redwood drive early Tuesday.
Currently Illinois American Water employees are working to fix the break.
The company says they hope to have the main fixed by the end of the week.
“The road is going to be closed at least until tomorrow it could be longer to help maintain the safety of our crews working to make the repair,” said external affairs manager Karen Cotton. “Then lanes will probably be opened up as we deem safe and weather permitting.”
The company’s ability to isolate the break allowed only five home’s to be affected.
