COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) --Crews working to repair a break in a water main on the west side expect the repairs to continue much of Thursday.

As a result, the right-hand eastbound lane of West Broad St. between North and Inah Avenues is closed.  Expect slow traffic through that area.

While it's hoped the lane will be reopened in time for the afternoon commute, motorists are advised to take an alternate route.

According to the Franklin County Department of Sanitary Engineering, no residences are affected by the break, but a few local businesses are without water.

Doctors West Hospital is unaffected, and no boil alert is expected.
