    Ketchikan, Alaska (KINY) - Ketchikan City crews are working on a water main break on an important street.

    Crews responded this morning to the 400 block of Schoenbar Road.  They blocked off the road and there was no thru access for vehicles.

    Officials urge residents to conserve water until the line is fixed.

    It is the second major water line break this month.  Schoenbar Road is an alternate route for motorists to avoid downtown construction and congestion.

    Officials expect 12,000 cruise ship visitors in the town today.
