Water main at Westport and Chamberlain repaired, road still partially closed for repairs

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Repairs on a broken water main are finished, but the intersection won't be open at least until sometime Saturday.

The break happened around 7 p.m. Thursday night in east Louisville at the intersection of Westport Road and Chamberlain Lane.

Water flooded onto the roadway and caused the pavement to buckle, leaving a hole at least 12 feet wide.

While repairs to the broken pipe are done, Louisville Water Company officials say Chamberlain Lane still has to be fixed.

After rain fell most of Friday morning, that work was delayed.

At this point, officials don't know when Chamberlain will fully reopen.
