HARTFORD — The Metropolitan District (MDC) says that part of Hawthorn Street in Hartfordwas shut down after a water main break.

The main was installed in 1902 and two, 2-family homes on Hawthorn between Imlay Street and Laurel Street was affected by the shutdown.

MDC said repairs are taking longer than expected, but say it’s not unusual since they don’t usually know the extent of the problem until they excavate.
