Water-line break snarls traffic

February 20, 2013

A broken water line flooded portions of Lafayette Road early Wednesday morning, limiting traffic on the busy street for hours. Indianapolis police blocked the road between 34th and 38th streets about 2:30 a.m. after the breakage flooded much of the road  and caused the pavement to buckle. One northbound lane was still closed late Wednesday morning, but utility workers hoped to have it open by afternoon.
