WILLOUGHBY, OH (WOIO) - Erie Street in downtown Willoughby has reopened after repairs were made to a water main break.

The water main break happened in front of the Wild Goose around 2 p.m. Wednesday. It took Lake County Water Department crews about two hours to fix the main. Several businesses and residents were without water during that time.

Some businesses were closed as well, but no property was damaged.

The water main is about 60 to 70 years old.
