Large water main break in the District
The water main break disrupting traffic near 17th and P streets NW occurred after a contractor began working on a streetscape project in the area, Department of Transportation officials say.
The contractor lifted a catch basin, or manhole cover, and the water main broke. Officials said the 20 inch main was installed in the 1880s.
The District's Department of Transportation is advising drivers to stay away from 17th and P streets NW. There's a large water main break.
And a reader to DCist sent the web site a picture from the scene.
