Outbound New York Ave. remains closed
Alan R. Haymann, a spokesman for the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority, said the road was expected to reopen by 5:30 a.m. The pipe was repaired about 1:30 a.m.
"It's a big hole," Haymann said.
Usually, the road would be covered by a steel plate, Haymann said. But the New York Avenue hole, about 25 feet long, needed to be repaired with asphalt.
Motorists can take an alternate route along Rhode Island Avenue.
The disruption created major backups throughout the day Wednesday.
