Water main break in East Whiteland Twp., Pa.

EAST WHITELAND TWP., Pa. (WPVI) -- A water main break shut down part of a road in Chester County Monday morning.

The ruptured main was discovered before 5 a.m. Monday on Swedesford Road in East Whiteland Township.

Authorities closed Swedesford Road between Church Road and Phoenixville Pike because they were concerned ice from the gushing water would create a hazard for motorists.

There was no immediate word when the road would reopen.
