A valve broke on top of a 12-inch pipe near Northeast Jefferson and Bryan streets, near Red Carpet car wash, about 6:45 a.m.

The water shot upward, bursting through through a pavement hole about six feet in diameter.

Final repairs to the water main that burst just north of Downtown Peoria on Monday will not likely be finished until mid-May.
