Downtown water main break halts production of major motion picture

A water main break in downtown Cleveland has halted filming of I, Alex Cross.

Filming was supposed to begin first thing Tuesday morning, but a hydrant valve break at Lakeside and Ontario forced crews to push production back a day.

A piece on concrete also fell onto the pipe and crews now have two repairs to make.

Water department workers hope to make the necessary repairs by day's end.

The break has not affected any water to nearby buildings.

When filming begins Wednesday morning, Lakeside Avenue will be closed from West Third Street to East Sixth Street until Saturday, September 10th.
