Versailles Road will remain closed at Alexandria Drive until at least 10 p.m. Monday as workers repair a water-main break.
At that time, it's possible that one outbound lane and two inbound lanes will reopen, said Ray Golden, spokesman for Kentucky American Water. That arrangement likely will remain in place on Tuesday.
Seventeen businesses and two homes in the area are without water. Golden said Kentucky American planned to restore water service by midnight Monday night.
A 12-inch cast-iron main ruptured at about 3:30 p.m. Monday, buckling the street and sidewalk in front of the McDonald's and Speedway on Versailles Road near Alexandria Drive.
