Sky 10 was above the scene just before 12:30 p.m. as traffic was slowly getting by through one lane.

According to a spokeswoman from the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department, a contractor struck a 16-inch water main near the intersection.

She said WASD crews are at the scene excavating the pipe to evaluate the damage to it. She said repairs will then be done.
