A water main break at McClurg Court between Ontario and Ohio streets hampered the flow of traffic in Streeterville.

Cars are re-routed through the area as crews attempt to fix the leak. Chicago Water Department officials said the pipe is from 1932.

"We have an old infrastructure, and some of these old cast iron pipes are prone to breaking," Tom LaPorte said.

No one is without water in the community.
