George Jenkins Boulevard is closed between Sloan Avenue and Brunell Parkway this evening as city crews repair a water main break at Veterans Avenue. The work to excavate and then repair an aging concrete line is expected to take several hours and possibly last until Thursday morning, city officials say.

Impact to residents is minimal but some nearby businesses may lose water service temporarily. Detours have been set up in the area.
