At one point, water flooded the roadway but the drains have now been cleared.

Crews at the scene say there is a hole about 12 feet deep at the driveway of the Speedway gas station where the water main break occurred. They say it could collapse, so the area has been blocked off. Also, water has been shut off to the gas station, which may effect some of the services offered.
