FARGO, N.D. — A large water main break in Fargo has created quite a mess for Tuesday morning’s commute.

The break flooded the University Drive underpass with up to 3 feet of water making it temporarily impassable. KFGO reports the water main break was reported about 1 a.m.

Public Works Supervisor Lee Anderson says crews were able to shut down the water break about 4 a.m. when the water began receding. Public works employees are dealing with the icy mess left behind.
