Northbound 11th street is being detoured for the forseeable future as City Water Light and Power repairs a water main break.

Spokeswoman Amber Sabin says northbound 11th is blocked between Cook and Edwards streets with detours posted.

South Sixth street between South Grand Ave. East and Cedar Street has been reduced to one lane for a separate water main break.

It’s unclear what caused the water main breaks and it’s unclear how long it will take to fix.
