A water main break has closed a portion of a road in West Hartford.
Police said Fern Street is closed between Robin Road and Trout Brook Drive.
The Metropolitan District Commission said the 8 inch main was installed in 1928 and was shut down at 7 a.m. on Monday.
Eight properties on Fern Street to Ballard Drive were affected.
Repairs are expected to last between 6 and 8 hours, which puts the completion time between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
