LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A water main break in Okolona is causing an issue for commuters.

The break was first reported on northbound Preston Highway about 5 a.m. Wednesday.  The water main is impacting the area between the McDonald's and Southern High School.

Louisville Water Company spokeswoman Kelley Dearing Smith now says crews are repairing an 8 inch water main - not a 24 inch main as she first told WDRB.  One northbound section of Preston Highway has large hole that will also need to be repaired.

One north and one south bound lane of  Preston Highway is closed, but water has been turned off for several customers in the area. But Dearing Smith says there is minimal customer impact.
