Water gushes several feet high, causing problems at Avent Ferry Road and Western Boulevard.

The water geyser occurred just after 10 p.m. Thursday near NC State.

Water shot several feet into the air. Two lanes were closed.

Crews contained the geyser around 11:30 p.m. They believe it might have been caused by a broken air release valve.

Public Utility officials estimated about 100 gallons of water were lost per minute during the incident.
