A water main break closed Eagle Road in Meridian between Fairview and Pine avenues Tuesday morning. Crews aren't expected to finish repairs until Wednesday.

A section of Eagle Road between Fairview and Pine avenues has reopened after a water line break forced the road to close Tuesday. The road will not fully re-open until late Wednesday, according to the Idaho Transportation Department.

A section of Eagle Road south of Fairview Avenue has limited access until 9 a.m. Wednesday with a 25 mph speed limit. ITD still recommends avoiding the area.

There are detours at Fairview and Pine avenues at Franklin Road. The broken pipe released at least 18 inches of water over the road.
