Water Main Break In Lincolnwood Snarls Morning Traffic

CHICAGO (CBS)--A water main broke in north suburban Lincolnwood overnight, and commuters endured long waits this morning at one busy intersection.

The water main broke around midnight near Touhy and Lincoln avenues. The intersection is a main thoroughfare for motorists accessing the Edens Expressway.

Only one eastbound traffic lane was open Tuesday morning-- a lane between Lincoln and Kostner avenues. Both westbound lanes were open.

Public Works crews conducted repairs after the morning rush hour, the village said.

All lanes have since been reopened.
