WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Wilmington police closed two northbound lanes of South College Road Thursday night, just yards from the intersection with Oleander Drive.

Water could be seen bubbling from the ground near the intersection.

Cape Fear Public Utility Authority crews worked throughout the night to repair a water break on South College Road between Jimbo's and the CVS pharmacy.

Paving crews finished the work Friday morning, causing delays during rush hour traffic.

Repairs are finished, and traffic flow should be back to normal.
