SAN LEANDRO -- A water main break forced police officers to shut down a major thoroughfare in San Leandro Saturday.
At 4:20 p.m., officers responded to Foothill Boulevard at Carolyn Street where water had completely flooded the road.
San Leandro police shut down Foothill between Carolyn and Manchester streets while crews worked to control the roadway flooding.
According to CHP, the flooding became so great, the on-ramp onto westbound Interstate 580 from Carolyn Street also was flooded.
The road re-opened around 6:20 p.m.
