DANVILLE (WSLS10) - Traffic is back to normal on a portion of South Main Street in Danville.

Friday morning, southbound traffic was limited to one lane between Watson and Levelton Streets.

The city's public works department was working on a sewer line that became clogged with asphalt as the road was repaved this week.

Initially, the department thought the line was going to have to be completely replaced as attempts to suck the asphalt out were unsuccessful but late Friday afternoon, workers were able to unclog the pipe using special equipment.

No sewage was spilled in the process.
