Several roads have been blocked in the downtown area after a water main break was reported just before 11 a.m. Tuesday.
Water crews were called to 14th and F Streets in the East Village.
As a precaution, traffic on the following streets is being redirected:
- Southbound 14th Street at E Street
- Eastbound F Street at 15th Street
- G Street at 14th Street
Two weeks ago, a different water main break caused a sinkhole along F Street that shut down the road to traffic between 13th and 15th. Also, 14th Streets were closed between E and G Streets.
In that incident it was a 16-inch cast iron pipe installed in 1911 that burst according to Arian Collins with the water department.
No word yet on what caused today's water main break.
