Water main break closes road in Alexandria

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA9) -- One lane in each direction of Duke Street has reopened after a water main break Monday morning, officials said. 

A water main break left Duke Street closed in both directions in Alexandria, Va. Monday morning, according to the City.

The 3600 block of Duke Street was closed in both directions, officials said. Drivers should use alternate routes. VA American Water says they learned about the main break around 3:30 a.m. Crews got to the scene around 5 a.m. 

They were trying to figure out the best valve to shut off the water to the broken main without disrupting service to too many customers. Drivers are being advised to use caution and drive slowly in the area. 

The DASH AT8 is currently detouring in both directions and may experience delays.
