CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

It was a messy morning for construction crews at the Route 250 Bypass and McIntire Road after a water pipe sent water spewing into the air Monday.

The break happened around 10 a.m. when a backhoe severed a water line near the Park Street exit. Utility crews responded to the scene and it took them about 30 minutes to cap the break.

No injuries were reported.
