CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — A water main break that tied up traffic in Cranston has been fixed.

The break occurred Thursday on Phenix Avenue, forcing police to shut down the northbound side of the roadway, according to Major Todd Patalano.

Southbound traffic was not affected.

Patalano said Phenix Avenue was reopened just after 12:30 p.m. Friday once crews finished making repairs.
