LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - A major Lehigh Acres road is back to normal following a sewer main break earlier this week. Thursday, the Department of Transportation approved the permit for crews to lay asphalt on a damaged section Homestead Road. Crews went back to the the area Thursday night to put the final touches on repairs.
Monday night, a sewer main break swallowed up the busy Lehigh Acres intersection, and causing traffic problems. U.S. Water said the damaged pipe that caused the trouble was about 50 years old.
Traffic began flowing freely in both northbound lanes of Homestead Road around 10:30 Thursday night.
