All lanes of Interstate 70 have reopened after a water main break near Jennings Station Road caused a large sink hole to form Wednesday afternoon.
Traffic on westbound I-70 was down to one lane through rush hour and much of the evening.
Missouri American Water crews worked well into the night to fill the hole, re-pave the road and reroute water to local customers.
Water Company Spokesperson Ann Dettmer says the 12 inch line broke because it was old and overused. Dettmer says as the ground dries up, it doesn't provide as much support.
Engineers will consider whether to replace the main or reroute water service around it permanently.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's legislative session is over, but the work may continue for some lawmakers.
Senate President Pro Tem Tom Dempsey says he is considering appointing at least three committees to study issues before the 2014 session.
A joint panel of Senate and House members could look into potential changes to the Medicaid health care program for the poor.
Another committee could study potential projects to be included in a bonding proposal that would be put before voters.
Dempsey said an interim committee also could look into changes to the state's regional solid waste management districts.
All of those committees would be continuing work on measures that failed to pass during the legislative session that ended Friday.
A home improvement project is being blamed for the explosion at a St. Peters home.

The house will need major work before it is livable again.
