Crews are working to patch up a water main break on the city's northwest side that's causing some street closures.

The pipe burst around 7 p.m. Sunday at Nagle and Catalpa, just two blocks away from the Kennedy Expressway.

Crews began flushing out the hydrants around 6:30 Monday morning, but the work is far from over.

Nagle is closed in both directions near Catalpa until further notice.
