ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A sewer line break continues to cause problems in a busy Albuquerque intersection.

It collapsed at Central and Rio Grande on Friday.

Despite working all weekend, crews have not been able to fix it yet.

The water authority says it was hoping the work would be completed over the weekend but says parts for the repair are coming in from out of town.

They say that’s added about another week to the project.

Officials say the collapse caused the problem to be more complex that originally thought.

The northbound Rio Grande remains closed at Central because of it.

There’s not a timeline for when it will be fixed.
