Cleveland Water crews have exposed the pipe and located the break that caused massive traffic delays on I-77 and Harvard Avenue in Newburgh Heights earlier this week.

Crews will now begin replacing the broken part of the cast-iron water main.

The break on Monday flooded Harvard Avenue, prompting officials to shut down both exit ramps off I-77S.

The affected water main was installed in 1949.
