There is a new water main break this afternoon (Tuesday, January 9, 2018) in the Bradlee/Fairlington neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.
This break is just south of Fairlington Plaza in the 1400 block of North Quaker Lane in Alexandria. Virginia American Water crews are at the scene. Expect road and/or lane(s) to be closed to traffic during repairs.
Remember, water mains are more likely to break between November and February. In other words, we’re right at the height of water main break season.
At this time, Virginia American Water expects the repairs to the water main break to be completed in the next few hours.
