Capitol Heights water main break floods street, causes delays

A water main ruptured in Capitol Heights Friday morning, flooding a roadway and causing traffic delays.

The water main break happened in the 800 block of Cedar Heights Drive at around 7 a.m.

Residents say water had been leaking from the main for about a week before the break occurred.

Emergency crews are on the scene making repairs. It is unclear when the roadway will reopen.
