Johnston Rd, Hwy 51 intersection reopen after water main break

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.
