Crews are repairing a water main break on Tijeras Avenue under the railroad tracks on Thursday.

Tijeras is closed eastbound at Commercial due to water leaking out on the street.

The issue was first reported around 11:15 a.m. David Morris with the Water Utility Authority said there was an outage to an unknown number of customers in the area.

Water has been restored to all customers.

Metro Court closed at 1 p.m. due to the water main break. The break also affected City Hall, The Convention Center, and The Double Tree Hotel.

It is unclear how long the repairs will take.
