LOGANVILLE, Ga. -- Traffic remains a problem on Highway 78, more than 24 hours after a water main broke, causing a large sink hole.
People who live in the area spent Thursday afternoon and night, scrambling to find bottled water to drink, as many residents were without clean water.
Crews worked throughout the night Thursday and into the early morning hours Friday morning to repair the water main, and the damage road.
By Friday morning, at least some of the lanes were passable, but motorists were encourage to find alternate routes.
Gwinnett County Fire and emergency crews responded to the break just before 2 a.m. Thursday. The break occurred in a 48-inch pipe that runs underneath the highway near Langley Road.
Crews with the Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources were able to stem the flow of water to the area at about 6:15 a.m., but water service is expected to be interrupted throughout the day.
