RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Detours are in place following a water main break on Semmes Avenue.

The break took place Tuesday morning and there is no word on when the repair will be complete.

Crews say a gushing hydrant is standard and the main can’t be fixed until all water has been drained.

According to officials, water main breaks are common as the weather changes.
