110 Freeway reopens after broken water pipe flooded road
The freeway was operational just in time for the Wednesday evening commute, with two closed lanes opened just after 5 p.m., the California Highway Patrol said.
Those lanes had been shut down about 1 p.m., as water flowed from a broken pipe in one of the area's tunnels, the CHP said.
"It's raining quite a bit of water," CHP Officer Spencer Badal said at the time.
Earlier in the day, Los Angeles Recreation and Parks crews were on scene, preparing to stop the water flow with a clamp. It was unclear what caused the pipe to burst, but a traffic collision might be to blame, the CHP said.
