16-Inch Water Main Break In Jacksonville Fixed

A major water main break in Jacksonville has closed off part a main thoroughfare.

The 16-inch line break happened under Gum Branch Road, near Summersill School Road. That line brings a major source of water into the city.

The leak was discovered around 6:00 a.m. and could be responsible for a five car accident after the water iced over onto the street.

By mid afternoon the line had been repaired.

The break caused damage to the road, and traffic is being detoured around the area. The city says a three-inch and half-inch holes were found in the top of the line when it was unearthed.

The cause of the leak is not yet known.
