A broken pipe has caused water to spill and freeze on a south Charlotte road Thursday morning, and Charlotte Water is encouraging drivers to use alternate routes.
Water froze in the 3100 block of Randolph Road near Billingsley Road, Charlotte Water reported around 7:20 a.m.
A crew is working to repair the pipe, officials said, and one lane is open in each direction.
Water was shut off at nearby Billingsville Leadership Academy because of the main break, Observer news partner WBTV reported.
Drivers are urged to use Monroe Road or Providence Road as an alternate route.
