Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Early Friday morning Duluth street and maintenance repair workers were called to a water main break on 4th avenue east and 6th street.

According to street maintenance workers the water was infiltrating from a block over.

The water quickly turned to ice in these cold temperatures, and froze as it ran down 3rd avenue east.

Essentia Health's east 4th street ramp entrance was blocked off from too much water pouring in from the break.

The break happened due to the cold weather, and crews were still hard at work at 1pm.

Responders expect repairs to be finished by early Friday evening.
