HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Crews completed repairs after a water main break in Hartford was reported Tuesday morning, officials said.

According to officials from the Metropolitan District Commission, the break was reported along Capitol Avenue before 5:30 a.m.

People on Capitol Avenue between Hudson and Main streets were affected by the break, but water service was restored around 4:30 p.m.

MDC officials said the 8-inch main was installed in 1930.

Capitol Avenue between Hudson and Main streets was closed to traffic for almost 11 hours while repairs were being made.

The repairs, which took longer because the break was underground, were completed just before 4:30 p.m., MDC officials said.
