MOUNT PLEASANT, SC - Mathis Ferry Road is now open after utility crews finished repairing a water main break near the intersection of Bowman Road.

Mt. Pleasant Waterworks says a utility contractor drilled through the water line in an attempt to run cable underground.

Water was restored to 150 customers who lost water due to the break.

According to town officials, major work was being done on the northbound side of the highway and police were re-routing traffic through the area.
