Cabrillo Bridge reopened to vehicles after water main break on El Prado in Balboa Park

SAN DIEGO - The Cabrillo Bridge is back open to vehicles after being closed for hours while crews repaired a large water main break in Balboa Park.

The break was reported Sunday morning on a 36-inch water main on El Prado just east of Sixth Avenue.

A hydraulics crew from the city's Public Utilities Department shut down the main. A spokesman said the large main has very high water pressure and the shutdown process was slow so as not to cause more damage to the water system. No customers were without water service during the repairs.

The repairs were completed and the bridge reopened to vehicular traffic just before 6 p.m.
