Sullivan Square Water Main Break Slows Morning Commute

BOSTON (CBS) – A water main break in Sullivan Square made the morning commute a nightmare for some drivers.

Check: Traffic Update

A 24-inch pipe broke before sunrise around 5:30 a.m. on the eastbound side on Cambridge Street just before the rotary, in the area of Main Street and Maffa Way.

MassDOT closed the Exit 28 off ramp from I-93 south, and drivers are asked to avoid the area if possible.

Boston Water and Sewer said there were no injuries, and no water service was disrupted as a result of the break.

They did, however, say that some area residents may experience low water pressure–but added that the water is safe to drink.

The break was under control by 7:50 a.m., but repairs are expected to affect the evening commute.

MBTA Bus Routes 104, 105 and 109 are detoured because of the flooding.

Boston Police and Boston Water and Sewer said they would provide updates on any other road closings ahead of the evening commute.
