Work to repair a water main break in Scottsdale near 92nd Street and Shea Boulevard wrapped up Friday.

The fix also meant all lanes of Shea Boulevard are back open to traffic after being restricted for several days.

Shea Boulevard was prevously limited to two westbound lanes and two eastbound lanes after water began flooding the streets early Wednesday morning. 

Additionally, the Camelback Wash bike and pedestrian path was also temporarily shut down as a result of water runoff.

The incident started early Wednesday morning when a 24-inch pipe burst. Getting to the pipe required crews to excavate a "significant portion of the median,"  a Scottsdale spokesperson said.

No homes or businesses were affected.
