A small water main break has created a crater in the roadway. 

After complaints from nearby businesses, the crater was filled, but the leak wasn't fixed, and the road became nearly impassable.

Frustrated, nearby employees reached out to 7 Action News.  Thursday a repair crew brought in the heavy equipment and went to work making the needed repairs.  The gravel used to fill the crater was removed, so crews could reach the leak underneath.
