UPDATE: As of Tuesday night, the city's Department of Environmental protection says the water main has been repaired and service has been restored to all customers.

Drivers are urged to steer clear of 65th Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan as crews work to fix a sink hole.

Con Edison says a water main break caused a section of the street to collapse.

The utility says it's near a steam pipe, and that the situation is releasing a large amount of steam in Lenox Hill.

Con Ed workers are pumping water out of the ground, and have been in the area since about 9 a.m. Tuesday.

The Department of Environmental Protection says it it is excavating the roadway to check on the infrastructure.
