A one-block stretch of Stinson Boulevard is closed until Nov. 24 after a water main burst, a city of Minneapolis spokesman said.

The 48-inch water main burst early Friday near NE. Broadway in northeast Minneapolis  sending thousands of gallons of water rushing into the street, said spokesman Casper Hill.

No customers have lost water service as the main is a "transition" main that delivers water to pipes in the system.

As crews make the repairs, Stinson is closed between NE. Broadway and Summer Street. A detour is posted via E. Hennepin Avenue and Industrial Boulevard, but access is open for local residents and businesses.

Here is video of the scene taken Friday morning by David Galitz.
