Traffic is jammed in Echo Park tonight after a water main broke near Glendale Boulevard and Effie Street, according to several reports on Twitter.  No details yet about when the water main will be repaired but Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, in a posting on his Twitter feed,  advised motorists to avoid the area for “several hours.”

Meanwhile, a No. 92 MTA bus that usually runs on Glendale Boulevard was temporarily stranded nearby on a steep street in Echo Park, according to a Twitter posting by Echo Park resident Jose Sigala. It’s not clear if the wayward bus was looking for an alternative to traffic-choked Glendale Boulevard but it made for a quite a site when it was stuck at the top of Fargo Street.
