Road Work Continues After South Charlotte Water Main Break

CHARLOTTE, NC – It’s night two of traffic troubles at a major South Charlotte intersection.

A water main break has crews blocking lanes at Johnston Road and Highway 51, Pineville-Matthews Road.

Charlotte Water tells us crews have finished work on the water pipe and are now working to repair the road.

One lane is open in each direction on Highway 51, but traffic still can’t cross Johnston Road.

“It’s been crazy,” says South Charlotte resident Jennifer Henry. “We’ve been up and down here two or three times today and it’s just a nightmare! And we just live right around the corner. And it’s been all day long. I thought it’d die down by now but it hasn’t died down at all.”
