Correction: a previous update to this story stated that water service had been restored to the area, but that update was in relation to a different water main break at North Academy Boulevard and Palmer Park Boulevard. That update has been removed.

All lanes of South Academy Boulevard are closed between Pikes Peak Avenue and Airport Road due to a water main break.
Colorado Springs Utilities (Springs Utilities) tweeted just after 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 8 and asked travelers to avoid the area while crews respond.
Springs Utilities did not provide an estimated time of reopening. FOX21 has a crew at the scene and will provide additional updates in this article once we get them.
