Crews were expected to finish repairing a broken water main Friday night that sent water gushing into the 1200 block of Woodlawn Road, a couple of blocks from Park Road.
The water collected Friday morning in the outer eastbound and westbound lanes, making travel hazardous into mid-morning.
Traffic, however, was light because of Easter weekend, when many people are off work.
The break was more severe than one that crews repaired Thursday elsewhere on Woodlawn, said Cam Coley, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities spokesman.

Crews, however, didn’t close any lanes except when trucks needed to get to the site, Coley said.
