Water main break causes water interruption; traffic headaches

It's quite a mess Friday morning at 3rd and Oak streets in Quincy.

A water main break was discovered at around 2:30 a.m. when someone saw water spewing up from underground.

The water is freezing over the pavement and sidewalks because of the cold temperatures.

Crews are working on getting the problem fixed.

Because of water main break, a boil order was issued in Quincy for customers living on 3rd Street from Elm to Oak streets and College Street from 2nd to 4th streets.

Crews are on the scene right now and say you can expect interruptions in water service for the next 5 to 7 hours.

Director of the Utilities Department for the City of Quincy David Kent said until the frequent fluctuations in weather temperatures even out, the main breaks will most likely continue to happen.
