Water was still shooting out of the road around 11 p.m. Crews said the valve is too old and rusted, so they had to find another valve to shut the water off.
A portion of Poplar Street is closed from Mansfield Avenue down to Churchill Road. The road remained closed early Friday morning.

Crews were working throughout the night to make repairs. Pennsylvania American Water said the broken line is a 24-inch main, and it was impacting service to approximately 2,700 customers. Pennsylvania American Water anticipated that service will be restored by late Friday evening.
