CARMEL, Ind. (WTHR) - A wastewater pipe running under 96th Street near Randall Drive failed Wednesday night, and repair crews have set up over the leak in the middle of 96th Street.

Crews identified the problem by digging a hole in the left turn lane of westbound 96th Street near the entrance to HH Gregg's headquarters west of Gray Road.

The repair is expected to take most of the day, and could impact traffic during the evening rush hour. Traffic backed up during the morning rush hour while crews worked at the scene.

No homes or businesses have lost service and a vacuum truck is removing any leakage as it happens.

Check back for updates.
