Streets reopen in Downtown Knoxville following water main break

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Main Street and State Street reopened Monday, just days after a gigantic water main break damaged much of the area.

The roads had been closed at the James White Parkway entrance since the break occurred on Thursday morning.

KUB crews spent the weekend working 12-hour rotating shifts to repair the damage.

Officials say a project of this size would typically take at least three weeks to complete.
