Two northbound lanes of the 110 Freeway north of downtown Los Angeles were shut down Wednesday after water started leaking from a busted pipe in the ceiling of a historic tunnel.
Two lanes of the northbound 110 Pasadena Freeway were closed Wednesdsay around 1 p.m. after a broken water pipe began to flood into a tunnel near Elysian Park, according to California Highway Patrol. A possible electrical hazard may also exist.
A Sig Alert was issued for the #1 and #2 lanes, and although the pipe was shut off, residual water leaking continued as officials waited for a piece of equiptment. The pipe issue was first noticed just after 11 a.m., according to CHP's incident report.
