A break in a water main shut down parts of Quinpool Road in Halifax Friday, but the road has since reopened.

Jake Fulton, a spokesperson for Halifax Water, said a water main broke around 4 a.m.

Quinpool Road was closed between Quinn Street and Connaught Avenue, although local traffic was allowed in and sidewalks remained open.
