HOUSTON (KTRK) --A water main break near downtown Houston is causing a major mess in the area.
A city of Houston public works spokesperson says a contractor working on a project off Allen Parkway and Taft hit at least one water line. Crews are at the scene trying to figure out if an 8-inch line or a 12-inch line -- or both -- are affected.
Businesses in the area are out of water.
That stretch of Allen Parkway also appears to be flooded, though cars can still get through.
