The Quarterdeck Restaurant in Fort Myer Heights is no longer landlocked. There’s now a small river flowing down Fort Myer Drive, past the 31-year-old seafood restaurant.
As if the Quarterdeck hasn’t had enough troubles as of late, crews will start tearing up the road in front of it later this afternoon to repair a 6 to 12 inch water main break.
Workers are waiting for clearance from electrical and gas utility companies before starting to dig. Once it begins, the repair process should take a few hours.
In addition to the street, water is also bubbling up through cracks in the Quarterdeck’s parking lot. No one was at the restaurant to tell us whether or not water was also leaking into the aging building’s basement.
