The Albany Water Department is fixing its second water main break this week on the same street. 

Water Commissioner Joe Coffey tells NewsChannel 13 Wednesday's break was about a block away from Monday's-- and it is a larger water main. 

The 16-inch main is a transmission line bringing water to other parts of the city. 

It took crews some time to stop the water flow after a 57-year-old valve did not work. 

Coffey tells NewsChannel 13, fixing the main and the roadwork will take a few days to complete.
