Lorain Road in North Olmsted now reopen

Lorain Road in North Olmsted re-opened Thursday night following a water main break earlier in the day.

North Olmsted police said businesses in the area have water again.

Because Cleveland supplies water to North Olmsted, workers from Cleveland's Division of Water worked to repair the line.

"We believe we may have a problem with one of our valves. A dome may have cracked or blown off," said Kim Thompson with the city of Cleveland water service.

The break left close to 25 businesses in the area without water.

It also forced the road to close to all drivers while crews made repairs.

"We'd like it to be (open) sooner rather than later, but we have to make sure it's safe for people to travel," said Dave Denaline from the city of North Olmsted.

Crews from Dominion East Ohio also helped at the scene by searching for a gas leak.

Workers say the rush of water from the break may have pushed the gas out of a sewer line.

Crews are expected to work through the night and into Friday morning.
