The road was shut down at 8 p.m. after the break was reported at 167 Francis Avenue. The Lighthouse Community Holiness Church and John and Sons Landscaping were affected, along with one home near the intersection of Francis Avenue and Day Street.

Repairs were expected to take between six and eight hours. The water main has been fully repaired as of 4:20 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan District (MDC) water company said the water main was installed in 1951.
