MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Crews worked to repair a water main break in Miami Beach caused by some construction equipment.

The incident happened late Wednesday afternoon at 10th Street between West Avenue and Alton Road.

Officials said about 85 customers were without water while the repair was underway.

Temporary repairs have been completed and water is back on, but city officials said a precautionary boil water advisory has been issued to those 85 customers.

It was originally thought repairs to the line would be completed by 9 p.m., but authorities said repairs to the line wouldn't be completed until later in the evening, as they were still waiting for a part.

As part Florida Department of Transportation's Alton Road Project, officials said new water mains and a new storm water drainage system will be installed, in addition to other street-scape improvements.

The leak caused traffic in the area to be affected.
