(KMOV) –Officials hope to have a water main break in downtown St. Louis fixed before the annual St. Patrick’s Day festivities this weekend.

The break happened on Market St. between 16th and 17th around 10:30 p.m. as fans were leaving a Bon Jovi concert at the Scottrade Center Wednesday night.

The water was shut off around 12 a.m., but Market St. sustained considerable damage.

Crews said they hoped to have it fixed before 5 p.m. Friday, as Saturday’s parade route goes right through the affected intersection.
