NORTHWEST PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A busy road in Chestnut Hill is still closed as crews work on a water main break. 

Drivers who usually take Bells Mill Road to get to Ridge and Henry avenues to get into the city have had to turn around, as it is closed between Germantown and Ridge avenues.

The Philadelphia Water Department said crews need to fix a broken water main under the road, which has several different leaks.

The department has not said how long it will take to finish the job.

As an alternate route if you’re on Germantown Avenue, take Church Road in Lafayette Hill or Walnut Lane in the city.
