Water main near Mall breaks
A break in a major water main prompted authorities to curb traffic near the Mall on Friday night while crews made emergency repairs.
Work was under way on the 24-inch-diameter main early Saturday on Constitution Avenue NW between 9th and 12th streets, said Pamela Mooring, a spokeswoman for the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority.
She said traffic on Constitution in the affected area was restricted to one lane in each direction.
It was not clear if the break resulted in any damage to nearby government buildings, including the Museum of Natural History and the Justice Department.
