VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Virginia Beach Public Works crews have fixed a water main break in a neighborhood near London Bridge Road and Dam Neck Road.

Calls reporting the break in the 2300 block of Mirror Lake Drive were received just before 4:30 a.m., according to emergency dispatchers.

Crews tell News 3 that contractors were working to repair a sewer main when they believe pressure caused a water leak in the main water line.

The water was shut off for about five hours so they could make repairs.

Officials are still working to find out how the pipe burst.
