A water main leak Thursday night under Highway 11/US 129/Jefferson Road at the Highway 10 Loop in Athens has required the closing of two ramps at the interchange for repairs on Friday, the Georgia Department of Transportation announced.

GDOT is asking motorists to avoid the area and use an alternate route, such as using Chase Street to access the Highway 10 Loop.

An estimated time for completion of the repairs hasn't been given.
