Rockford Public Works Director, Tim Hanson, says 3 to 4 homes are out of water due to a 6 inch water main break.
These homes will be under a boil order for 24 hours after the water is tested this afternoon.
City of Rockford Water Division advises drivers to avoid Highcrest Road and Chelsea Avenue due to a current traffic issue.
A water main repair near Highcrest Rd and Chelsea Ave has closed the Highcrest Rd from Ardon Ave to Scottswood Rd and will require a detour of traffic until early next week.
City of Rockford Water Division crews believe the break was due to ground shifting and the weather.
