Water Main Ruptures On Queens Boulevard; Massive Delays

A water main ruptured in Elmhurst early this morning sending hundreds of gallons of water into the streets causing evacuations and transit delays.

The call came in shortly after 8 a.m. about a water main break at 51-35 Reeder St. near Broadway and Queens Boulevard.

The cause of the water main break is being blamed on the construction site at the former Wendy's location.

According to the MTA, southbound M and R train customers are being urged to use the last four cars of the train and exit at Grand Ave-Newtown station.
