Water main break in South Charlotte
The north bound lanes of Lancaster Highway in the Ballantyne area remained closed early Friday, after being blocked off over night for waterline repairs. South bound lanes reopened about 6:30 a.m.
A large water main break on the south Charlotte highway occurred about 2:45 a.m. Friday at Lullingston Road, just north of Ballantyne Commons Parkway.
Traffic headed into Charlotte is being rerouted onto Ballantyne Commons Parkway, toward Interstate 485.
Charlotte water officials shut off water valves leading to the break and were working over night to get the line repaired. Many residents in the area will be without water for a time. There's no word on when officials expect to have the road reopened.
