Traffic on Illinois 159 in Swansea was no longer restricted by Wednesday midday near the village government building.
Swansea Police Chief Mike Arnold said the water main that burst Tuesday has been repaired and the roadway is fully open.
A main broke due to extremely cold temperatures Tuesday.
Arnold estimated that there were 6-8 inches across the five lane highway at one point. He said the water didn't have any place to go because sewer drains were clogged with ice and snow.
