Gardena residents woke up to a flooded mess at a major intersection Thursday after a water main broke overnight in another reminder of the Los Angeles area’s aging infrastructure.
The break was reported about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday in the eastbound lanes of Rosecrans Avenue, just west of Vermont Avenue, according to the Gardena Police Department.
The break caused relatively heavy flooding on the south side of Rosecrans Avenue, police said.
Crews were on this scene Thursday morning making repairs. Rosecrans Avenue, between Vermont and Berendo avenues, was closed for the repairs, police said.
Water main breaks have caused a number of streets to be flooded in the city of Los Angeles and surrounding areas in recent times.
