A broken water main forced the closure of a freeway ramp early Thursday in Hollywood. 

Water from the broken pipe flooded the North Highland Avenue exit ramp from the northbound 101 Freeway. The ramp is expected to remain closed until at least 10 a.m. due to flooding. 

At least one stalled car was towed from the water.

The break was in a 12-inch cast iron pipe that dates to the 1930s. Water was shut off early Thursday, affecting service at nearby apartment buildings

Service is expected to be restored Thursday afternoon.
