TULSA — City crews are busy this morning as they work to repair three waterline breaks in Tulsa.
Crews are currently working at waterline breaks at:
- 21st and 129th East Avenue

There is a large waterline break at 21st and 129th. Please avoid the area if possible. If you have to drive that route, please slow down and give crews plenty of space to work. #PublicSafety #WorkZone #Tulsa #ColdJob— City of Tulsa (@cityoftulsagov) March 6, 2019
Ice is forming on the roads, streets are blocked and nearby neighborhoods are flooding.
Crews tell us that 20 businesses affected near 21st and 129th East Avenue waterline break.
Crews say the pressure was so strong that it broke through the concrete.
Crews say it'll take about six hours for them to make repairs.
Crews said the waterline break near Pine and Harvard was a 16-inch break, and the road will be narrowed for about two days as they make repairs.
