The east gate of MCAS Miramar was shut down Monday after a report of a water main break and sinkhole.

Water main break reported in the area Sunday

The California Highway Patrol advised motorists Monday to avoid the area of Miramar Way and Interstate 15 until further notice due to lane closures forced by a weekend water-main break.

The infrastructure failure on the outskirts of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar left the base's eastern gate out of commission pending repairs and led to heavy rush-hour congestion Monday morning, the state agency reported.

The conditions could persist for up to a week, according to CHP public affairs Officer Robert Catano.

The pipeline rupture occurred Saturday morning, Catano said.
