Crews are repairing a water main break that flooded an intersection in southwest Houston.

The Public Works Department tells us a 24 inch line broke on West Airport near Fondren around 6am.

A contractor has been called, and the line is expected to be fixed by midnight. Until then, the westbound lanes of West Airport are closed, and the eastbound lanes have been converted into two-way traffic.
