OAK RIDGE (WATE) - A water main break caused a traffic detour in Oak Ridge Tuesday morning.

Dispatchers say the water main break happened on West Outer Drive, causing water to spew down Illinois Avenue and freeze.

The water was shut off, and crews put down salt and sand on Illinois Avenue.

Traffic was detoured southbound on Highway 62 to Highway 61 toward Clinton for a time, but the break was cleaned up a short time later.
