CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A water main break in Over-the-Rhine near Central Parkway Tuesday prompted a boil advisory for a large swath of the I-75 corridor in Cincinnati.

The advisory is lifted as of 8 p.m. Wednesday. Testing shows water is free of contaminants, according to Greater Cincinnati Water Works.

The City says the break happened in the abandoned subway tunnel beneath Central Parkway. GCWW assessed there was no damage to the tunnel itself.

The break temporarily lowered water pressure, prompting the advisory as a precaution.
