Broken water line causes lane restrictions, backups in Indianapolis



Indianapolis, Indiana — On Thursday, following a broken water line, traffic at a busy downtown intersection near Victory Field was reduced to one lane.

Emergency workers responded to a report of flooding at the intersection of Maryland and West Streets sometime around 6 a.m.

That’s near Victory Field, the J.W. Marriott hotel, and the Indiana Convention Center.

Traffic on northbound West Street was reduced to one lane so crews had plenty of room to work.

According to Citizens Energy, it expects the lane restriction to last through the evening rush hour, and drivers are asked to try and avoid the area.
