Crews have restored two of the three water mains that broke near the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and N Street NW Thursday morning.
Two of the three water mains that erupted yesterday near the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and N Street NW, have been repaired and utilities have been restored to about 35 commercial properties that were left without water, power and gas.
The massive water main break affected traffic and shut down water service for many buildings in the area, leaving first responders to deal with flooding.
N Street, between Connecticut Avenue and 18th Street remains closed. Connecticut Avenue is restricted to one lane going southbound, and to two lanes going northbound.
Traffic on southbound 18th Street is blocked between N Street and Massachusetts Avenue. Northbound traffic is restricted to one lane.
These closures will remain in effect until all repairs are done to the surrounding streets.
