VIA THE WASHINGTON POST:
Water main breaks in Crystal City last night are going to add difficulties to commutes in the area: Several Metrobus routes will be taking detours due to the breaks. There will also be big issues for drivers.
Routes 23A and 23C will be detouring between Jefferson Davis Highway and 23rd Street. Routes 9A and 9E are going to detour between 23rd Street and Jefferson Davis Highway. These detours are expected to last throughout the day.
Additionally, southbound traffic on Jefferson Davis Highway will face problems in this stretch, so alternate routes are recommended. Traffic is being detoured onto parallel routes like S. Eads Street and S. Clark Street. The George Washington Parkway is also a good option to get around this.
Crews are working to repair three breaks in a 12-inch water main in Crystal City. The breaks occurred at the 2600 block of Jefferson Davis Highway (between Airport Viaduct and 27th Street South), Jefferson Davis Highway at 23rd Street South and 2900 S. Eads Street. The work is expected to continue through the morning rush hour.
