CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

An intersection in south Charlotte was shut down due to a water main break Friday afternoon. 

The break occurred at the intersection of Johnston Rd. and Hwy 51. Officials say the water main break is a result of crews digging for fiber optic cables. 

Charlotte Water tweeted Sunday morning that all lanes were reopen. 

Officials set up a detour Friday after the break and requested drivers to stay "far away as possible".
