Roads were closed in east Spokane Tuesday night when a water main break flooded Hamilton Street with several inches of water. One lane in each direction is open. It is slow going and there will be delays.

Crews responded to the scene near N. Hamilton Street and E. Sharp Avenue just after 9:00 p.m. According to the City of Spokane, the break was located in a 12 inch cast iron water main near 800 N. Hamilton. Roads were blocked from Boone Ave to Trent, crews worked through the night. It is still unclear what caused the break.
