CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A broken water main flooded several city blocks and shut down traffic on part of Damen Avenue in the North Center neighborhood Wednesday evening.

Crews responded to the broken water main in the 4300 block of North Damen Avenue just after 3 p.m., according to Tom Laporte, spokesman for the city's Department of Water Management.

Damen remained closed to traffic between Montrose and Berteau avenues as of 7:15 p.m. as crews try to find the source of the main break, Laporte said.

Cullom Avenue was also still shut down between Lincoln and Damen avenues, Laporte said.

It wasn't known when the streets would be reopened, Laporte said.
