The water main on Congress Street broke between City Hall and Faneuil Hall early Monday morning

Congress Street was a slushy, slippery mess Monday morning after a pipe burst and flooded parts of downtown Boston overnight.

A portion of Congress Street alongside Boston City Hall reopened before 9 a.m.as work crews continue to fix a major water leak that flooded the street and sidewalk in downtown Boston Monday.

The road was covered in water and debris, but the flooding is now under control.

A massive water main break Monday has shut down a busy street, creating traffic trouble near Boston City Hall.

Pedestrians were urged to avoid the area altogether as cleanup crews worked on removing the pools of water. Earlier, NBC 10's John Moroney reported that the water appeared to have frozen in some areas.

Drivers should expect delays in the area.
