TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Crews are repairing a water main break on Oakwood Avenue.

A mandatory boil water advisory has been issued for parts of Troy, including east of Burdett Avenue, including Pawling Avenue and Pinewoods Avenue, and all of Brunswick, North Greenbush, and Poestenkill.

A water tanker has been placed at the Walmart on Route 7 for people who need water. Residents need to bring their own water container.

The road is currently closed between Frear Park Road and Farrell Road. Motorists are urged to seek alternate routes and observe detours. 

Officials say traffic will detour to Frear Park Road to North Lake Avenue to Liberty Road to Farrell Road.

Crews expect to be on scene for several more hours.
