NORMAN — City crews are working this morning on a water line break on W Robinson Street, between 24th Avenue NW and Woods Avenue. City officials had no estimate on how many customers are without water.

Police officer Jennifer Newell said the 16-inch transmission line broke in front of the Westwood Park tennis courts on the south side of Robinson.

"Water has flooded the roadway and made an already slick situation slicker," Newell said.

Robinson is closed to traffic between 24th and Berry Road.
