Water main break repair to take longer. Tamala Edwards reports during Action News Mornings on July 26, 2018.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- City officials admit it's going to take a lot longer for repair work to be completed after a water main break earlier this month.

The 48-inch main broke near the intersection of Juniper and Sansom streets on July 3.

It sent millions of gallons of water flowing through the streets.

On Wednesday night, the Philadelphia Water Department told businesses near the area that they hope to have the intersection open by mid-October.

They also said they hope to have the project finished before the end of the year.
