Ann Arbor Police Lt. Angella Abrams said the street is expected to be closed for several hours while the main is repaired. She said there was a significant amount of water across the street.
A contractor working in the area hit a 16-inch water main, breaking it, said Joanna E. Satterlee with the city's Communications Office.
Water service has also been disrupted in the area from Research Park Drive to Hilton Boulevard, an advisory from the City of Ann Arbor said.
The break occurred about 3 p.m. Thursday.
No further information was immediately available.

No boil water advisory? I live nearby and my water was literally so brown when I got home from work that I checked the news for a water main break.

Seems like investigating a water main break would be pretty easy. "There's a pond in the middle of the road, looks broken to me..."

That should read main not min.
