Watermain break results in Boulevard closures

A watermain burst early yesterday, shutting down portions of Roosevelt Boulevard near Southampton Road.

The break, about eight inches, occurred around 6:45 a.m. in the outside  and inside northbound lanes.

The lanes were reopened in time for the afternoon commute, but this marks the fourth watermain break in the Northeast in less than a month.
