The Los Angeles Fire Department is reporting a "water main rupture with pavement damage" on West Cahuenga Blvd. in the community of Cahuenga Pass. The street is passable, however, traffic is expected to be rerouted once the Department of Water & Power arrives on scene. For now, though, the DWP is stuck in traffic, so that won't happen right away. There will likely be delays this afternoon going over the pass in either direction, prepare your patience or thank the gods you took the Red Line subway to work today.

Over in the West Valley at 15900 Mulholland Drive, another water main has ruptured after a contractor accidently ripped through it this afternoon at 2:44 p.m. Crews are up there and managing the traffic. No street closures are anticipated.
