Water main break on Roosevelt Boulevard

A water main break near Roosevelt Boulevard is pouring water onto the busy road and disrupting traffic.

The main broke overnight along the southbound Roosevelt Boulevard (U.S. Route 1) near Unruh Avenue in the city's Castor section.

Traffic was detoured away from the outer southbound lanes in the area for part of the morning.

Crews from the water and fire departments are on the scene.

Temperatures in Philadelphia are below freezing this morning, so icy road and sidewalk conditions from the water are likely.
