A water main break could mean a messy commute Monday for one Northwest Side community.

Utility crews waded through freezing water up to their shins Sunday morning near Wilson and Avers in Albany Park.

Witnesses say the water spread to the intersecting street before the main was turned off.

Below-freezing temperatures are being blamed for the break.
