PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A water main break on the Roosevelt Boulevard which occurred Wednesday night continues to cause major issues for the morning rush in Northeast Philadelphia.

Crews were called around 10 p.m. for a water main break along the Boulevard near Southampton Road.

Chopper 6 was over the area as cars drove through the gushing water.

The break forced the southbound lanes of Roosevelt Boulevard to close.

Initially, both the inner and outer lanes were impacted. As of Thursday morning, the outer lanes remained blocked.
