Water main break ties up traffic in West Hartford

WEST HARTFORD — Crews fixed a water main break at a busy intersection Thursday afternoon.

The MDC said the main was fixed and service was restored around 3 p.m. Officials at MDC  said crews responded to the  break on a 12 inch water main.  “Construction work being performed by CNG in close proximity to the water main appears to be the cause of the break,” said Kerry Martin, of the MDC.

Police tweeted, “There is currently a water main break near the intersection of I-84 and Park Rd. in West Hartford. Please avoid the area as repairs are made. There is no estimated time for area to be clear again, but crews are working on the issue.”

The main was shut down at 12:40 p.m. and two homes on Park Road near the intersection of Raymond Road were affected by the shutdown.
