NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A water main broke in downtown Nashville late Tuesday afternoon, sending water rushing into the roadway.

It happened on James Robertson Parkway outside of Robinson, Reagan and Young law offices.

Officials with Metro Water Services told News 2 the 8-inch main broke possibly due to a contractor doing sidewalk work.

“Due to the location, other utilities must be given the opportunity to mark their underground infrastructure. Our crews will begin excavation as soon as this is complete,” officials added.

Work is expected to continue on the main through the evening.
