LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Two lanes on Wilshire Boulevard are closed as crews continue to work Tuesday on a water main break.

An eight-inch pipe at Wilshire and La Jolla Avenue broke at about 7:30 p.m. Monday night. Water was seen bubbling over the street, and there were reports of the street buckling.

Water was shut off to 20 customers in nearby buildings, but work continues on the pipe into the morning.

An eastbound traffic lane and a bus lane are closed during repairs. LADWP did not have an estimate on when the repairs would be finished.
