Citrus Heights police say all lanes of traffic are closed along Old Auburn Road in the area due to the incident.
Work crews are at the scene trying to fix the problem, which officers say has caused part of the roadway to erode. Crews believe the break could be under Old Auburn Road and it’s unclear how compromised the roadway could be, so people should avoid the area for the time being.
Only one home’s water service is affected by the break, officials say.
