AUBURN — For the second straight morning, city crews are closing a street to repair a water main break.

“Apparently there is something in the water,” Auburn Police Chief Jason Moen wrote in a statement released Friday morning.

Turner Street from Mount Auburn Avenue to Mayfield Street was closed to all traffic due to a large water main break, according to Moen.

The southbound lane was opened about 9 a.m. but traffic  was not able to travel northbound still, according to a later statement. Police expected both lanes to be opened Friday afternoon.

Moen urged motorists to find alternative routes for the morning commute.
