A detour to tell you about -- a water main break has shut down a portion of Cherry Street in Newark.

The pipe burst early Sunday morning underneath two southbound lanes of Cherry Street, just south of Central Avenue.

Motorists are being urged to avoid the area. Police estimate that it could take eight to 12 hours to repair the water main and clean up the area.
