A large water main break has caused northbound Scottsdale Road near the CrackerJax park to be reduced to one lane, city officials say.

The damaged pipe is a 20-inch transmission main, according to Scottsdale Water Public Information Officer Nicole Sherbert.

The affected area is between Tierra Buena and Paradise lanes on northbound Scottsdale Road.

No customers are without water, but the break in the large main caused significant road damage, which will take several days to repair, Ms. Sherbert said.

Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes. CrackerJax is open during the repair.
