OAKLAND (CBS SF) — East Bay Municipal Utility District crews repaired a ruptured sewer line in Oakland Friday morning.

The line ruptured Thursday while EBMUD crews were working to repair a broken 12-inch cast iron water main on Oakland Avenue, officials said.

Approximately 12 properties on Oakland Avenue lost water service Thursday and the work closed two eastbound lanes of Oakland Avenue.

The pipe was repaired at 3 a.m., and water service has been restored to customers, officials said.

Crews are still working to remove shoring and fill the hole. Work was expected to go into the afternoon.

The bike lane on Oakland Avenue remained closed Friday morning.
