SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – An early morning water main break completely closed a major road in downtown Springfield.

The break happened on Boland Way, between the Marriott and Sheraton hotels. Police closed the street just before 5:00 Tuesday morning, but one lane of traffic was allowed through by the late morning hours. The roadway was completely re-opened before noontime.

Meanwhile, the nearby Memorial Bridge is closed, due to set-up for the Star Spangled Springfield fireworks. The bridge is not expected to re-open until about 11:00 Tuesday night.
