UPDATE 3:30 PM on 3/29/2013:

The early morning main break at N. Lombard Street and N. Reno Street has been repaired. All residents have water service and the street has been repaired. Traffic has returned to normal.

Main Break Information from early morning 3/29/13:
An eight-inch cast iron pipe has caused the street to buckle at the intersection of N. Lombard Street and N. Reno Street in North Portland. There is no sink hole. Traffic is being directed to a single lane and motorists are encouraged to avoid this intersection.

Residents continue to have water service. A Portland Water Bureau crew is working to repair the main break by the end of the day. An update will be posted when it has been fixed.
