ROCKY RIVER, Ohio -- All lanes of Interstate 90 in Rocky River have been reopened after a water line break.

**Fox 8 Viewer Marc Cross submitted the video above of the break and gushing water**

According to city officials, the break happened underneath the Valley View Drive bridge over I-90 in Rocky River near Hilliard Road at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

A portion of a 12-inch pipe broke, resulting in several gallons of water flowing onto the highway.

Water crews were able to quickly isolate the main and turn the water off, but had to assess and repair damaged pipes.

All lanes had officially reopened by about 10:30 p.m.

    This report is stating ‘several gallons ‘escaped from a 12 inch pipe burst? I witnessed several thousand gallons and standing water approx one foot deep for several hundred feet ,resulting in some cars stalling out . It was traumatic driving under the waterfall when this started.
