JERSEY CITY - Crews are continuing work to repair a water main in Jersey City.

The 20-inch water main broke overnight Sunday into Monday on Sip Avenue between Bergen and Summit avenues.

The leak was closed Monday morning, but crews have run into complications making repairs on the broken pipe. Crews have to shovel mud around the lines by hand to avoid further damage to gas, phone and power lines near the site of the break.

Officials say about 60 families on Sip Avenue have been affected. The Jersey City Office of Emergency Management says those customers will be without water service overnight.

United Water has a water tanker at the location to provide residents with water. Authorities have not issued a boil water advisory.

Kennedy Boulevard is shut down between Pavonia and Tonelle avenues for the repairs.
