A water main break created a traffic mess on Chicago's Southest Side during the evening rush. The break was temporarily capped Friday night.

A 24-inch cast iron pipe burst near 130th and Torrence.

Crews have now been able to put a plate over the hole. They will do a more permanent fix when the weather improves.
