A water main break snarled traffic for several hours Tuesday on McGregor Boulevard, according to the Fort Myers Police Department.

The water main break happened near the intersection of McGregor and Royal Palm Square boulevards, according to police.

Fort Myers resident Chris Matura, of Fort Myers remained patient during the water main break.

“Oh it doesn’t really bother me because I know they have to do it to improve the road out there so it’s a good thing in the long run and I’m willing to wait,” Matura said.

There were 100 homes and businesses without water after the break, according to police.

A boil water notice was deemed unnecessary, but there was one business that will adhere to a boil water notice until Friday, according to a county spokesperson. The name of the business is unclear.

Drivers were encouraged to avoid the area, but the road was expected to reopen around 5 p.m.

Crews have left the scene and the road is now accessible to traffic.
