Water main break closes one lane WB on King St

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA9) -- One westbound lane of King Street is still closed Monday from 30th Street South to Park Center Drive due to an eight-inch water main break.

Officials say the break occurred between 30th and Park Center on King. At this time, the cause of the break in unknown, but officials say it was likely due to age.


Currently, one westbound lane and two eastbound lanes are open on King Street. Officials say these lanes should remain open throughout the repairs.

A spokesperson for Virginia American Water says crews are replacing a portion of the main instead of just fixing the break. Because of the extra repairs, crews will be on the scene beyond rush hour.
