KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Crews in Overland Park, Kansas, had to repair a water main break near the Oak Park Mall Wednesday morning.

Two northbound lanes of Quivira Road were shut down Wednesday morning between 95th and 99th streets while crews worked.

Overland Park officials said the 12-inch water main was fixed late Wednesday afternoon.

Though the mall wasn’t affected by the break, some nearby businesses, including Sonic and Chick-fil-A, were impacted.

Pictures from the scene showed a large amount of water blocking the road while emergency crews redirected traffic.
