Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville Water Company is investigating a water main break near the intersection of Westport Road and Chamberlain Lane.

The main broke around 7 p.m. Thursday, flooding the roadway with water and causing the pavement to buckle. Police have blocked off Chamberlain Lane at the intersection. 

MetroSafe says the hole was first reported to be 12 feet wide. 

Officials with The Louisville Water Company say they have crews on scene investigating the break and will have more information soon, though the break may be fixed by Friday morning.

One lane of Chamberlain Lane remained closed Thursday evening and was being detoured by police. LMPD also asked Ford workers to take La Grange Road to avoid the intersection.
