Crews at Kansas City International Airport have restored water service to one of its terminals, a day after a water main break prompted travelers to rely on shuttles to go to another terminal to use restrooms.

Officials say the 12-inch pipe failed Tuesday afternoon, forcing crews to shut off water to the airport's Terminal B. Portable toilets were brought in. Water service was restored shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Airlines that use Terminal B include Southwest Airlines, Delta and Alaska. Flights were unaffected by the water disruption.

Opinions are divided about the potential $1.2 billion price for replacing the current three-terminal configuration at Kansas City International Airport with a single terminal.

The Kansas City Star reports that critics say the price is too high and that many people like the current setup.

But Aviation director Mark VanLoh says that if the airport doesn't rebuild, it still needs an estimated $600 million in upgrades and renovations in the next few years. That includes $160 million in airfield and de-icer improvements.
