A portion of Smallman Street in Pittsburgh’s Strip District remained closed Wednesday morning after a water main burst Tuesday night and flooded a large stretch of the busy corridor.

Crews continue to repair the break which has left Smallman Street closed to traffic between 15th and 17th streets.

Motorists are advised to use Liberty Avenue as a detour.

Emergency personnel, including firefighters, public works and water safety officials responded to the 36-inch water main break near the 16th Street Bridge shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday, Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority spokesman Will Pickering said.
