This on a day where there has been flooding in areas across Broward County.
The City of Fort Lauderdale is making emergency repairs to the broken water main, which is located on Broward Boulevard between Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest 5th Avenue.
City Manager Chris Lagerbloom says this will be a multi-day repair.
The city is planning on shutting down the road Sunday and Monday night.
“We think we have it sort of isolated but we want to make sure we have where it is before we start digging up the road,” said Lagerbloom.
