COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Columbus Division of Police closed North 4th Street at East Maynard Avenue due to a water main break.

City officials say water crews are investigating a water leak in the area.

Officers closed North 4th Street between Hudson and east Maynard avenue while crews worked to repair the leak.

The Columbus Division of Water spokesman says crews are working to repair a 24-inch water line. During the repairs, North 4th Street will remain closed throughout the day.
