Authorities reported at 1 p.m., that Teal Road west bound, off ninth street, was closed. East bound Teal Road remained open.

It took crews over two hours to repair the street. The break has been fixed and Teal Road was re-opened.

 

Lafayette Water Works Superintendent Kerry Smith said the break was caused by warming temperatures.
