All northbound lanes of North Sherman Avenue were closed Friday morning due to a water main break, Madison Water Utility officials said.

MWU crews responded to the large main break around 6:50 a.m. on Sherman Avenue two blocks north of Aberg Avenue, according to a release.

Officials said crews isolated the break just before 9 a.m., but it could take at least 4-6 hours until the northbound lanes of North Sherman Avenue are reopened to traffic.

Homes and businesses in the 1500 block of North Sherman Avenue will not have water until the main is repaired, according to a release.

According to the release, Sherman Middle School and Shabazz High School do have water.
