(KMOV) – Crews were attempting to fix a large water main break in north St. Louis County Tuesday morning.
The 8-inch break happened at the intersection of Hollenberg and Boenker in Bridgeton around 6:30 a.m.
Boenker was closed from Hollenberg to St. Charles Rock and drivers were being urged to alter their route to avoid the spewing water.
A few businesses, including Motel 6, were affected by the break.
American Water officials said they hoped to have the break repaired by evening rush hour.
