FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) –  East State Boulevard near Kentucky Avenue is open again after a water main break.  The area was closed until Sunday afternoon.

Water main breaks are keeping city utilities crews busy.

“The extreme cold temperatures this winter pushed the frost line deep below the ground and in some cases even below our water pipes. The extra pressure can cause pipes to break,” Frank Suarez, a city spokesman, said in a media release.
