Water main break closes major Silver Lake street*

A section of  Glendale Boulevard at  Silver Lake Boulevard was closed for several hours today after an eight-inch water main burst early this morning.  Southbound Glendale Boulevard was closed at Silver Lake Boulevard fpr much of the day and only one northbound lane was open.  But all lanes had reopened before 5 p.m.  An Eastsider reader reported that large amounts of water were gushing from the street at about 5:30 a.m.  The break, located on the west side of the street in front of Neutra architecture office,  has left about 30 customers without water, according to a DWP spokeswoman.

This story has been updated with new information.


  1. 5:30 am, pitch dark and all I could see were yellow lights flashing at the Bank of America. There was so much water that it continued down Glendale and onto Rowena.

  2. In other news, Mr. Neutra has registered a complaint with the city that the open trench in front of his office detracts from the aesthetic appeal of his office and harms the Neutra legacy.

  3. Does anyone know the water main has been fixed and whether traffic is still affected in the area?

  4. *I meant to type, Does anyone know WHETHER the water main has been fixed and whether traffic is still affected?

  5. This happened right in front of our studio – my company has rented the Neutra offices for nearly 5 years now. Everything is fixed and and traffic is no longer affected (by that)! Amazing that it was addressed and fixed so fast!

  6. Hey, can anyone tell me where the houses that are without water are? My elderly mother’s house is not far from there, but she’s up here in Oregon with me for the holidays; just want to know if her house is affected.
