NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - A water main break is affecting water pressure in sections of New Providence on Monday evening.

Crews from New Jersey American Water are working to repair two separate water main breaks in the area of Passaic Street and Walker Drive. These breaks will result in homeowners temporaily losing water pressure.

Also, damage to the area roadways have resulted in detours being set up along Elkwood Avenue, Madison Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue, with the potential of overflow traffic hitting other area residential streets. Currently, there is not a timeline for full restoration.
