3:15 p.m. City officials have shut down the leaking water line, which is impacting a few businesses west of Rockwell Avenue on Northwest Expressway, spokeswoman Debbie Ragan said.

“We don't know what caused it yet,” Ragan said.

The eastbound right lane is closed while crews work, she said.

It likely will take workers three to five hours to repair the leak, depending on what they find, Ragan said.
