LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Crews from the Louisville Water Company are preparing to begin work on a massive water main project in the Highlands to prevent breaks.

The bulk of the work will get underway in November, but crews are already working on water mains along side streets in Eastern Parkway area.

The work is the beginning of a three-year project to replace a cast iron water main below Eastern Parkway.
