Commuters got a free car wash of sorts Monday morning along the Katy Freeway, whether they wanted it or not.

Water was spraying across I-10 at Eldridge for more than an hour. The eastbound frontage road received the bulk of the water, but even drivers heading the other way probably needed their wipers for a moment.

Houston Public Works says a contractor doing work in the area hit an 8-inch water line causing the break.

Crews worked to assess the damage and repair the water line.
