Traffic returned to normal Tuesday afternoon on Cherry Road in Rock Hill after crews finished repairing a broken water line.
Some clean-up work remains to be done, but the major leak has been fixed at Cherry and Anderson roads, city officials said.
The line burst around 5 p.m. Sunday, rupturing the street in several places on northbound Cherry Road at the intersection and sending water flooding into nearby parking lots. The torrent reached as far south as the Super Bi-Lo on Cherry Road, stranding some customers of nearby businesses inside.
Water pressure along the line heading into Fort Mill and York County was down Sunday afternoon. Officials asked area residents to cut back on water usage because of the low pressure.

On Sunday night, the city received several calls from residents complaining about discolored water, city spokeswoman Lyn Garris said. The city had to reroute water flow around the break, which stirred up sediment. Water is safe to drink, officials said.
