Escondido City crews are still working to repair a water main break that occurred earlier this morning in the vicinity of Valley Parkway and El Norte Parkway.  Repairs will require extensive excavation so it is likely El Norte Parkway and Valley Parkway will be reduced to one lane in each direction throughout the day and evening.   Motorists are advised to avoid that area if at all possible, particularly during the evening rush hour.
