DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — A water leak on Jay Street caused Monday morning's traffic delays in Downtown Brooklyn, according to city officials.
A private pipe leading to 300 Jay Street was leaked onto the roadway, causing city officials to close northbound Jay Street between Johnson and Tillary streets and some bus lines to be rerouted, according to the Department of Environmental Protection.
The DEP shut off water to the pipe, which stopped the leak, and restored the roadway, according to a spokesman for the agency.
The leak did not affect water service to the neighborhood and 300 Jay Street has been issued an order to have its pipe repaired, the spokesman said.
All traffic restrictions were lifted by Monday afternoon, according to the Office of Emergency Management.
