The Maryland Heights Police Department have closed Progress Parkway at Westport Plaza due to a road collapse.

*******Road Closure***** Progress Parkway at Westport Plaza Drive is closed due to the road collapsing. Crews are on scene making repairs. Please find another route. ( @EdwardJones in Maryland Heights for your employees that travel that way)— Maryland Heights PD (@MHPolice) May 14, 2018

A water main break caused the collapse, Maryland Heights PD said. The road will be closed from anywhere between a few hours to several days.

One lane of Progress Parkway will be closed during rush hour as crews from Missouri Water repair the break. If you are in the area, you are asked to use alternate routes. Crews believe the heat had a role in the cause of the break.
