MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - UPDATE: A portion of 14th Street is still closed Monday. Crews are working now ripping up asphalt.

The road is closed several blocks east and west of 10th Avenue, due to a water main breaking Sunday.

Water flowing from under the asphalt buckled the street, so it is not safe to travel in this area.

Crews put up barriers to block it off. Drivers need to find an alternate route.

Meridian city crews told WTOK that pipes will often break as the weather starts to change.
