Crews are working on repairing an aging sewer line that was broken when a piece of concrete fell on it from the roadway 15 feet above it.

While repairs continue on a massive sinkhole that appeared earlier this week at the intersection of 14th and F Streets NW, yesterday afternoon the D.C. Department of Transportation announced that two southbounds lanes along the busy corridor were again open to traffic. Work continues today on the 15-foot-deep sinkhole, and northbound traffic will not be allowed to proceed up 14th Street from Pennsylvania Avenue to New York Avenue.
