Water main break closes section of Old Glebe Road

Update (5:45 p.m.):: Old Glebe Road from Tazewell to North Glebe Road will remain closed for the next day or so as crews try to repair the break, said Dave Hundelt, an Arlington County engineer.

One lane of northbound North Glebe Road near the intersection of Old Glebe Road will also remain closed for some time.

According to Hundelt, the main was 36 inches wide and could take a few days to repair.

Update (3 p.m.):: The break occurred in a 20-inch water main, said county spokeswoman Diana Sun.
"It is very likely to be an aging infrastructure issue," she said.

Update (2:30 p.m.):: Arlington officials are warning
that residents in the area of Old Glebe Road near Dittmar and North Glebe roads may experience a temporary decrease in water pressure due to the water main break.

An official said that crews are just beginning to start repairs and had no estimate of when the problem would be resolved.
