HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A small, but busy section of Hardy St. which had been closed because of a collapsed sewer line has re-opened.

The westbound lane of Hardy St. from Highway 49 to S. 29th Ave. was opened just after 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon.

The road had been closed for several days while crews repaired a break in a sewer line.

It was most likely caused by a recent heavy rainfall.
