Cameron Street, between Herr and Market Streets, has been closed since about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night after crews were alerted to some water on the roadway.  About 7 a.m., Harrisburg Public Works crews began getting to the scene with heavy machinery in an attempt to locate the break and make any repairs.

There is a potential that Cameron Street could be closed for several hours for the work to continue.  The best alternates right now are Herr and Market Streets to reach the downtown area. So far, traffic backups have not been too problematic in the area.
