OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - M.U.D. and crews from Omaha Public Works returned to a familiar place Monday night to fix a water main break.

The break at 42nd and Harney streets is at the same place where another major break caused a lot of damage last October — and a road closure for several weeks.

The city released a statement Tuesday morning advising that the intersection could be closed for a month.

Additionally, Nebraska Medical Center’s Clarkson Doctors Building South will be closed until Monday, the hospital said in a press release.

Nebraska Medicine announced Monday night that it would have to close Clarkson Doctors Building South on Tuesday because of the break. All other areas on the campus were operational.
