Street reopens 3 months after South Phila. water main break

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

21st and Bainbridge streets in South Philadelphia are back open to traffic.

A water main break in July left behind a massive hole.

When the four-foot water main broke, it let loose 10 to 15 million gallons creating flooded streets and tons of sodden trash.

After three months of repairs and construction, the city reopened the intersection at 4:00 p.m.
