Early Tuesday Morning Water Main Break on Woodward, Near Campus Martius by WDET

Northbound Woodward Avenue remains closed between Congress and Campus Martius after a water main break early Tuesday morning left streets under water.

David Gregory owns Foran's Grand Trunk Pub, a popular bar and grill just yards from where the water main break occurred. Gregory said after a frantic 5 a.m. wake up call about the water main break, his business is still open to the public.

"we haven't yet seen a loss of pressure so I'm crossing my fingers we don't," he said. "The health inspector just came and passed us, making sure (the water) was on. So they’re on their job."

This season's harsh winter has led to water main breaks across metro Detroit. Repairs at this morning's break on Woodward and are expected to be completed by early evening.
