Repair crews worked Saturday to fix a water main break that has been disrupting traffic in Union Square.

The 12-inch main ruptured shortly after noon on Saturday, undermining the street and leaving a number of commercial and residential customers without water.

It happened on East 15th Street between Union Square East and 3rd Avenue.

Traffic, including the M2 and M3 buses, had to be re-routed around the scene of the break.
