Crews are on the scene of a water line break on Ridge Road at Associate Avenue. The break happened on an 8-inch line and there was a separate leak on a 12-inch valve.

Both southbound lanes on Ridge are closed while the northbound lanes are down to one operating lane in each direction.

They expect the road to be open later today.
