Two sets of water tests showed no contamination after a water main break Thursday night caused low water pressure. 

The water main belongs to the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA). The city of Livonia said there was a transmission issue with the water main along Schoolcraft Road (I-96 Service Drive) from Stark Road to Middlebelt Road.

Water was spilling onto I-96 on Thursday night causing a big traffic problem. Vehicles were being averted off of the freeway at Middlebelt Road, but it was clear for traffic Friday morning. 

The city said extensive road repairs are needed. Eastbound Schoolcraft Road east of Middlebelt Road remains closed to traffic and is expected to be closed for several days. Access to the on-ramp for eastbound I-96 is available.

Nearby Redford Township also was under a boil water advisory. That's been lifted.
