NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — Crews have completed repairs to a water main break in Niagara Falls could that had an impact on Thursday morning's commute.

Crews began working on the break at 3 a.m. in the middle of the intersection of Packard Road and Niagara Falls Boulevard. The intersection was covered with water and blocked by traffic barrels.

Drivers on Niagara Falls Boulevard are able to continue through the intersection, as the road is reduced to one lane in both directions. But drivers have to veer off to the right or left instead of going right through the middle.

Drivers on Packard Road are unable to cross Niagara Falls Boulevard due to the work. They'll have to turn onto Niagara Falls Boulevard or Pine Avenue and find an alternative route.

Traffic will be returned to normal patterns in the area by 3 p.m.

No customers are impacted by the break.
