Water main break in Fordham floods several area roadways
A water main break in Fordham flooded several streets and caused road closures Thursday.
The break happened on East Kingsbridge Road and Creston Avenue. Fire officials were forced to close a portion of East Kingsbridge Road between Creston and Jerome Avenues, and East 193rd Street from the Grand Concourse to Jerome Avenue. Bus service on the 9, 18 and 22 lines was being re-routed to University Avenue, but has been restored for the evening rush.
An official from the Office of Emergency Management says repairs will likely take a few days, but adds that things could have been much worse. Businesses have remained open, but owners say it's been a slow day.
