RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Keep an eye on the road this morning - another water main break is leaking water onto a city street.

The latest break is at the intersection of 3rd and Main streets in downtown Richmond.

This main broke around 2:30 Thursday morning.

It doesn't look like much of a big deal because of the temperature, which caused the leaking water to turn into ice.

Work crews were called out to the area where they put sand on the ice. The leak is still visible on one lane of Main Street.

This water main break is just one of a couple dozen we've seen this month.

No lanes are closed in this area, something that's a little different from the other breaks we've seen, but take caution for any ice that may remain on the road.
