LOUISVILLE (WAVE) - A water main break shut down an entire block of Market Street early Wednesday, and the water is expected to be out for homes and businesses for much of Wednesday.
Water started bubbling up out of the ground around 4 a.m. in front of an antique store in the 600 block of east Market Street.
Crews closed the westbound lane of east Market between Clay and Hancock Streets, but hoped to have it reopened.
After a preliminary investigation, water company officials speculated that the break could have been weather-related.
A traffic official says a van parked in the area may have helped keep the buckling pavement in place.
Officials were looking for the van's owner because they needed to have it moved in order to make repairs.
Crews were trying to open at least one lane of Market near Clay, but were concerned that the ground could be unstable. That stretch of road could be one lane for much of the day and some customers could be without water.
Water was rushing over the curb and onto the sidewalk, but the flow subsided when crews shut off the water.
