ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — A water main break caused icy conditions on a busy street Tuesday morning, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office said.

Eastbound East Iliff Avenue at South Yosemite Street was down to one lane because of the break.

Because of the cold temperatures, the water froze and created skating rink-type conditions for drivers in the area.

The sheriff’s office advised drivers to use caution because of the conditions or to seek alternate routes.

There is no word on what caused the break or how long it will take to make the repairs and reopen the lane.
