Water authority crews finished repaving Mount Pleasant Road on Thursday, said spokesman Tim Motz. The road had closed Tuesday morning after a portion of it collapsed and swallowed a sport utility vehicle. No one was injured, Suffolk police said.

Water service was restored to 26 customers about seven hours after the 12-inch pipe burst at about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. The cause of the break was not known, Motz said.
