Pipe break at I-64 near Newstead

ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – A pipe break at westbound Interstate 64 and Newstead is spilling water on the highway and causing heavy delays.

Missouri Department of Transportation traffic cameras indicate that traffic is getting through, albeit very slowly.

A MoDOT spokesperson says the break was not related to ongoing construction in the area.

A city official says MoDOT damaged but did not break a water line running beneath the interstate. When St. Louis Water Division Crews moved in to fix the damaged, they accidentally broke the water line.

No one is out of water pressure because of the break.
