Northwest Cornell Road near 119th Avenue was reopened Sunday after a water line broke Friday afternoon.

Tualatin Valley Water District crews stopped the water leak Friday, but they estimated about 1.1 million gallons of water were lost, said Frank Reed, communications coordinator with the water district. Reed said crews are still trying to determine what caused the 12-inch line to break.

On Saturday morning, the water district began repairing a 230-foot section of the road, where a hole was formed after the line broke. The break occurred on Cornell north of U.S. 26, outside of Beaverton.

Cornell Road is closed between NW 119th Ave and NW 113th Ave because of a 12 inch high-pressure water pipe break. The break happened about 3:45 PM on Friday, July 30, 2010.

The Oregonian reports that the road may be closed for up to 4 days.
