DEPEW, N.Y. (AP) - A water main break has shut down a busy intersection in suburban Buffalo as crews endure sub-zero temperatures while doing repair work.

The break was reported around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Broadway and Transit road in the village of Depew, just east of Buffalo.

Authorities say it could take at least 12 hours for repairs to be completed. Forecasters say the temperature will rise from minus-2 degrees to the teens later Tuesday.

Stretches of Broadway and Transit Road near the site of the break are closed. The closures are forcing commuters in the neighboring towns of Cheektowaga and Lancaster to take alternate routes.
