COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - UPDATE 1:20 p.m.

All lanes of southbound Academy Boulevard between Palmer Park Boulevard and East San Miguel Street will reopen around 2:30 Saturday afternoon.

---------------------------------

All southbound lanes of North Academy Boulevard were shut down on Friday while crews were working to repair a water main break.

Crews were working to fix a six-inch line between Palmer Park and San Miguel.

Steve Berry with Colorado Springs Utilities said the road was too cold to pave, but they are expecting warm enough temperatures over the weekend to complete the work.

Water is expected to be restored to businesses around the area by noon Friday.

The northbound lanes were not affected.
