(Hannibal)--Updated 8:50 p.m. by Wes Mitchell:   Repairs to a ruptured water line at Third and Center in Hannibal went smoother than first anticipated.  An employee of Hannibal BPW advises the water main break was in the smaller 4 inch part of the line and repair work wrapped up shortly after 8:30 p.m. BPW crews have reopened 3rd Street to 2-way traffic.

The repair was completed without significant loss of pressure, so no boil order will be issued for the area.
