Crews are working to repair a water main break in Bayonne, New Jersey.

A contractor doing road work Tuesday struck a 30 inch main near the intersection of Avenue E and East 52nd Street.

The main is a transmission line that brings water into the city.

United Water says no residents are without water and it is safe to drink, but pressure may be low.

United Water crews will be working through the night to repair the main.

The break happened at around 2 p.m., leading to traffic tieups in the area well into the evening.

United Water doesn't expect anyone to lose water during the repairs.

A spokesman says the company hopes to complete the repair work by Wednesday morning.

The crew doing the road work was not connected to United Water.
