All lanes of traffic are back open today on First Avenue at Seventh Street ... this after five days of repairs for the sinkhole/swallow hole/collapse due to a broken pipe... which backed up traffic all the way south to ____ during that time...
... there appeared to be a sinkhole setback last evening, as this photo via EVG regular Raquel Shapira showed...
Anyway, all good now.

An EVG reader shared this from late this afternoon... when workers from Express Plumbing Sewer & Water Main Corp. were working outside 111 E. Seventh St. between Avenue A and First Avenue "going crazy. Cowboy style."
Per reader Andrew Bushong:
They dug two giant holes in the sidewalk and street. Around 5 p.m. they broke a main. City was called and now they're "supervising" the same plumbers while eating cupcakes. I'm a bit pissed as they've turned off water for the block on the eve of a blizzard.
And this has caused seceral businessed to close early, including Desnuda and...
Our EAST VILLAGE (125 E7) shop has closed for the night. Apparently a water main burst, somebody's water broke, or something. cc @evgrieve— Big Gay Ice Cream (@biggayicecream) March 14, 2017

Dave on 7th reports there is a water main break on East Seventh Street at Avenue C. Crews are on the scene now — since roughly 4 a.m. The water has been shut off here on East Seventh Street for the time being. DEP notices say that the water could be off for up to 16 hours ... one resident has already expressed his or her sentiments on this flyer ...

Con Ed is at the scene... and gave the all clear on electric and gas... However, an unknown number of residents will be without water for several days, according to what officials told Katja.

Workers are digging into the guilty party...

EV Grieve reader MP sent along this photo, noting that work crews were busy here overnight on East Ninth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue repairing a broken water line... we understand the water was shut off on the block...and it was running a mucky brown. Any updates?
Updated 7:08 a.m.
The workers got the job done... water is back on this morning... the street is patched back up...

Several residents said they have been without water since 11 a.m. There's no word on when the DEP will restore service... signs on doors to the buildings say it will be off for "approximately 8 hours" ... Uh, so that would make it 7 p.m.
A few places are closed... (including Goat Town) If you have plans along here tonight at a drinking or dining establishment, then you may want to call ahead... There will likely be some delays in opening...
Anyway, here are a few shots of workers at the scene... (photos courtesy of Jaime Darrow)
According to its website and Twitter account, Goat Town is closed tonight because of the break...
