    My understanding is it was a water main, not a sewer pipe... though the water was discolored, there wasn't any smell... still a freekin' mess though

    You are correct, the original news story was amended as water pipe. Still like the post title though. Wonder how much operations was disrupted at The Linq? When I first saw the pictures, ahead of the story I thought maybe the wash basin was now flowing down that strip of land.

    There was no smell but part of the street was messed up. The crowds had to walk along a narrow side of some parts of the Linq so it got crowded. Some restaurants and stores was also closed during the day(sunday) but opened up later on in the evening.
