The break was first reported at 10:52 a.m. on Midway Drive between Duke and Kemper streets, according to San Diego Police Officer Steve Bourasa.

The entire roadway was flooded, and police shut down the street, Bourasa said. Traffic was jammed in the area around the closure, and a SigAlert was issued.

Bourasa could not say how long it will be until the road can be re-opened.
