    Morning commuters beware. A water main break on Girard Avenue in Fishtown forced repair crews to close portions of the busy road Thursday morning.

    The crack dumped some 4 million gallons of water onto the street.

    Girard was blocked off between Frankford Avenue and Marlborough Street. 

    SEPTA bus routes along Girard were also affected.

    Residents and businesses on the west side of the 100 and 200 blocks of Girard were without water service, according to the Philadelphia Water Department.

    Commuters heading east to the Interstate 95 on ramps or exiting from I-95 onto Girard should consider alternate routes.
