Peoria - Drivers will have to cope with the partial closure of University Street for several more days.

Crews started repairing a water main break July 4th and had to close down the southbound lanes between Lake and War Memorial Drive, but they had to re-excavate the site Monday.

Illinois American Water says the crews plan to make the permanent repair Tuesday morning.

However, they cannot repair the street until the main is fixed.

Water officials expect it all to be done and reopened by the end of this week.
