Water main break causes traffic trouble

A water main break on Houston's west side has stopped, but there's still a traffic alert for drivers. An old 16 inch water main burst around 5am Friday, spewing water all over Hillcroft near Westheimer. By 9am, the water had stopped, but surrounding businesses were without water. It's expected to be out for a few hours.

One southbound lane of Hillcroft has buckled and is shut down to traffic. The lane could be closed for a few days. Take note if you're headed out to shop on this Black Friday.
