A water main break caused a 15-foot-wide road collapse in Covington and shut down both lanes on 7th Street between Bakewell and Philadelphia.
The break was fixed by Wednesday morning but now road crews have to re-pave the road.
Crews on the scene say it could be two days before the road is back open.
