A water main break that caused multiple closures and detours in Hackensack Thursday has been repaired.
Video clips obtained by News 12 New Jersey showed water from the main shooting up into the air – even reaching as high as one of the nearby apartment buildings.
The break was reported around 3 p.m. Thursday on Railroad Avenue and Atlantic Street. Streets have since reopened.
It was not clear how many customers were impacted by the break.
