MERRIAM, KS (KCTV) -

An overnight water main break is expected to cause problems for drivers during their morning commute.

The break happened before 11 p.m. Tuesday near Johnson Drive and Mackey Street.

Crews were able to fix the water main at about 6:30 a.m.

Police say the break happened along the median and has grown progressively worse and even caused the road to buckle, tearing through the concrete.

One lane of Johnson Drive was closed in each direction for nearly 10 hours due to the damage to the road.

All lanes have now reopened as crews have repaired the damage to the roadway.
