Part of Needham Street was closed to both lanes of traffic Wednesday morning after a large water main break.

The Fire Department reported part of the street was "buckling." It said crews may need "all day" to repair the road and that major traffic delays were expected throughout the day.

The break was reported at about 9:30 a.m.

"all day" to repair the road - hopefully, but, good luck with that statement - your talking about a major repair - the water main will be fine but the streets still going to look like a bomb hit it
