Baltimore Public Works crews have fixed a 20-inch water main break that flooded roads Tuesday night near the Harbor Tunnel.

The break was repaired about 7:45 a.m. Wednesday and is not expected to affect the morning commute, according to a Public Works spokesman.

Keith Avenue in Southeast Baltimore was closed about 6 p.m. after a break happened at the joining of an old and new main. The road reopened about three hours later. Crews shut off water valves and worked overnight to repair the break.
