Crews were investigating a water main break in downtown Boston on Sunday that temporarily shut down ambulance traffic at Tufts Medical Center and forced the evacuation of a building.
Boston Water and Sewer Commision inspectors and Boston police officers and firefighters were called to an alley off Harrison Avenue and Kneeland Street at 8:03 a.m. after a 12-inch water main burst, according to Janet Taylor, an internal communications manager for Boston Water and Sewer.
Taylor said traffic was flowing on both sides of the main roads despite the break on Harvard Street, and no services were affected.
