LYNCHBURG, Va.UPDATE

Water is back on for the homes in the Chowan Ave. area but it is running at a low pressure. Crews are still working to repair the break. 

ORIGINAL STORY 

Lynchburg is starting the new year with a water main break. 

Crews are working to fix the break, which is near the 900 block of Chowan Ave., close to the Myrtle St. intersection. Expect delays if you are driving in that area. 

Water is turned off to some of the homes there as crews begin to excavate and make the repairs. 

There is no estimate yet for when the break may be fixed.
