Sewer line collapse causing closures on Broadway

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A sewer line collapse under a main thoroughfare in downtown Louisville expected to cause traffic delays for the rest of this week.

A spokesperson for the Metro Sewer Department said a lead line collapsed under Broadway between 1st and 2nd Streets. MDS first noticed a hole in the road Monday evening.

Crews are now working to repair the line, causing them to close the center lanes of Broadway.
