Water service restored after main break near Target Center


City crews restored water service to the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis after a 16-inch main broke Tuesday morning. The water was back on in time for a Minnesota Lynx game Tuesday night, the Star Tribune reports.

The Pioneer Press reports Lifetime Fitness and Hubert's restaurant located inside the building had been closed for much of the day.

The rupture sent 90,000 gallons of water rushing pouring into the streets at the intersection of 6th Street N. and 2nd Avenue North, starting around 7 a.m., causing a large sinkhole, according to the Star Tribune.

Flooding prompted the Minnesota State Patrol to temporarily close ramps onto I-394 at 6th Street and 4th Street, FOX 9 reported. Two nearby parking ramps were also closed for a short time as well.

The Star Tribune has video.
