CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

All lanes are now open in both directions on Carowinds Boulevard as crews finished repairs to a broken water main that created a big headache for commuters this week.

The break occurred around 2 p.m. Tuesday and caused the Carowinds Amusement Park to lose water for about an hour. The park regained water through a back up supply just after 3:30 p.m., park officials told WBTV.

The 14000 block of Carowinds Boulevard, between South Pointe Boulevard and Choate Circle, had to be closed for repairs to the 12' water main, according to the Charlotte Mecklenburg Utility Department.

The road was fully reopened by 6 p.m. Thursday.
