The intersection of 26th and Valencia streets in the Mission District will remain closed at least through this evening's rush hour as crews replace a broken section of a water main, according to a San Francisco Public Utilities Commission spokesman.
The break on the 80-year-old, 16-inch main on 26th Street occurred atabout 4 a.m., Winnicker said. Once it was determined where the break was officials shut down that section of the main at about 7 a.m., he said.
Water pressure that slowed down or stopped was restored to the area by about 7:15 a.m., according to Winnicker.
The exact cause of the break is unknown, but there tend to be more breaks during the winter, he said.
