(KMOV.com) – All lanes of Highway 159 in Swansea did not reopen in time for Wednesday morning's rush hour traffic due to a water main break caused by bitter temperatures earlier in the week.

The main break happened Tuesday morning and was fixed by around 9 p.m.

But crews had to repair the pavement before opening all lanes of the highway around 12:45 p.m.
