ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Crews have now finished repair work on water main after a break.

At about noon Thursday, a 10-inch main bust at DeKalb Avenue NE and Elmira Place in Atlanta. Dekalb County officials say there were actually two breaks in the same line just five feet apart.

The west bound lane of the road is expected to re-open later today.

Crews will have to place a metal plate over the hole today and hope to fill it on Monday because the concrete will not set during rainy weather. The lane will be closed again during that work.

Water has been restored to homes in the area.
