ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. (WCAX) - A busy street in Essex Junction is back open after being shut down due to a water main break.

Essex police say just before 8:30 p.m. Monday, a 12-inch water line ruptured, flooding Pearl Street in the area of Hillcrest Road.

We’re told the water main break is fixed as of Tuesday morning and water has been restored.

Crews worked overnight to repair the road. Drivers should be aware that a small part of Pearl Street is now gravel.

Police are still investigating what caused it.
