Nearly five hours after a 12-inch water main broke Tuesday morning, crews completed repairs along Peake Road near Interstate 475 in Bibb County.
Water has been restored to that area, said Darryl Macy, manager of sewer conveyance and water distribution for the Macon Water Authority.
The break was mostly off the road, but water iced over on the pavement in the curve near Parklane Place.
Macon Water Authority crew supervisor Donnie Mullis said conditions were treacherous when he arrived.
Bibb Sheriffs deputies called for salt trucks, but the rushing water washed it away.
A front end loader continually spread gravel in the curve as crews dug to find and repair the break.
With Middle Georgia expected to stay below freezing until Wednesday, Macy anticipates more breaks this week.
We have a lot more problems when it thaws out and the pipes move, Macy said.
Water was bubbling up from a manhole cover on Ridge Avenue near Ingleside, but that was a sewer overflow, not weather-related, Macy said.
No major problems or outages were reported Tuesday morning.
