EUGENE, Ore. -- Water flooded Olive street in between 9th and 10th Street in downtown Eugene Tuesday, restricting the roadway to one lane of traffic.
The break happened at around 12 p.m. Tuesday when a contractor with the Lane Community College project downtown hit an 8 inch cast iron water main, the Eugene Water and Electric Board said.
The main sent water rushing out into the roadway, which prompted EWEB to close the southbound lane of Olive. Repair crews were able to restore service at around 3 p.m. and the street was reopened five minutes later.
The break only cut off water service to the Eugene Public Library.
