RTA Red Line reopens in Little Italy

RTA Red Line reopens in Little Italy

Streets are still closed in Little Italy due to Friday's water main break. However, the

Red Line E. 120th Station reopened early Tuesday morning.

It has also been shutdown since Friday.

The break happened around 1 p.m. Friday on East 120th Street.

The 24-inch water main that broke has been repaired. Crews are now filling the hole, which requires a lot of concrete. After that is finished, they will begin cleaning up the street.

For at least a few more days, East 120th is closed between Euclid and Mayfield, and Euclid is also closed between East 118th and Lakeview. 

Officials say the sub-freezing temperatures were just too much for the 91-year-old pipe to take.
