Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — A water main break caused few problems along Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh early Wednesday morning.

The break happened around 4:30 a.m. between Randolph and Glen Eden, just inside the beltline. Water flowed into Glenood Avenue for several hours.

The Utilities Department said extreme changes in the temperature, from cold to warm, caused the break.

Workers shut off the water to repair the problem. Crews said it could be late afternoon before repairs are complete and the water is back on.
