This morning a portion of Cherokee Ave., near the intersection of Cherokee and Will Rogers is closed for construction.

According to Garret Ball, engineer for the city of Claremore, this is in response to a water main break around 3:30 a.m. Ball said a six-inch cast iron main broke.

Crews had to wait for other utility locates until about 6:30 a.m. to begin work.

Drivers are encouraged to take alternate routes.
