A water main break in Redwood City is affecting part of a nearby hospital, a city spokeswoman said Tuesday. 

The break, reported just after noon on Marshall Street between Walnut and Maple streets, has cut off water to the new wing of the Kaiser Permanente Redwood City Medical Center, according to spokeswoman Meghan Horrigan.

Some other businesses in the area might also be experiencing low water flow or have no water because of the break, Horrigan said.

Some water remains in the roadway Tuesday afternoon but Marshall Street has reopened to traffic after being closed earlier because of flooding.

Repairs to the water main could continue as late as 6 p.m., according to the city.

Horrigan said the cause of the break has not yet been determined, but work crews are investigating.
