North and southbound lanes of Highway 45 near 4th Street in Eagle River remain closed as crews work to repair a water main break.

The break occurred around 9:30 am Saturday morning. Eagle River Light and Water and the Vilas County Sheriff's Department responded to the break.

A Deputy with the Vilas County Sheriff's Department tells NewsChannel 7 it will likely take until mid-afternoon or later before the break is repaired and both lanes of Highway 45 re-opened.
