LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The busy intersection of Eastern Parkway and Baxter Avenue will remain closed at least through Wednesday, even though necessary repairs to a 48-inch diameter water main that broke on April 24 have been completed.

According to Kelley Dearing Smith with Louisville Water Company, road crews cannot repave the intersection, which collapsed after the water main break, until the rain moves out.
