A water main break first flooded, then iced over an Omaha street Sunday morning.

MUD was called to 87th and Center after a 12-inch water main broke shortly after midnight. About 60 customers were affected. Service was fully restored by 8:30 a.m.

In the process of shutting down the main, a valve broke. To replace the valve, crews again shut down the main at noon and expected to complete repairs and restore service by Sunday evening.

Approximately 60 customers were affected, including businesses in Canfield Plaza. Traffic remained restricted to one lane for several blocks in the area.
