MORGANTON, NC (WBTV) -

A water main break on Highway 18 north of Morganton has caused a partial collapse of the roadway, according to Morganton Public Safety. 

The highway is the main road from Morganton to Lenoir. One lane in each direction is back open as of Saturday night.

Traveling through the area will be difficult for motorists, as the water main break occurred before the Catawba River Bridge.

Officials have not said when the road will reopen.
