Outbound Versailles Road is back open after a water main break near Alexandria Drive shut it down Tuesday afternoon.

Kentucky American Water officials arrived just before 11 a.m. Tuesday to begin repairs on the break, the company announced on Twitter.

Crews think a 12-inch diameter water main was broken, said Susan Lancho, a spokeswoman with the water company. The break appears to have been caused by natural changes in the ground or shifts in the soil over time.

A boil-water advisory will not be issued, Kentucky American Water said. Repairs on the break are expected to be done around 5 p.m.

Previous unrelated water main breaks in Madison and Jessamine counties this week prompted boil-water advisories.
