Crews with the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority are responding to a sewer main break on Dawson Street Wednesday afternoon.
According to officials, the break occurred in the 400 block of Dawson Street between South Fourth and South Fifth streets.
Crews will need to close the southernmost eastbound lane on Dawson Street so repairs can be made to the broken water main.
Officials are hoping the work can be completed in the next four hours.
