Water Main Break Near Rosslyn

A water main break last night in Fort Myer Heights caused asphalt to swell and crack, and water to bubble up through patches of grass.

The culprit is a relatively small six-inch main at North Quinn Street and 16th Street, TBD reported. It’s unclear when the main and the road will get patched up (perhaps it already has), but as of 10:00 last night water was still out in the neighborhood. One or two blocks were closed, but there were no major traffic problems.

Reader Ari Schulman took a few photos of the water streaming down North Quinn Street.
