Victoria Street in the CBD is closed due to a burst water main.
There is massive flooding throughout the street and emergency services are directing traffic both ways.
Swanston Street, Elizabeth Street, Peel Street and Queensberry Street are all copping heavy traffic as a result.
Vic Traffic says diversions may be in place for some time so plan ahead to avoid the area.
