A popular commuter shortcut that connects Pentagon City with Glebe Road has been closed due to a water main break.

S. Adams Street is closed from 25th Street S. to 26th Road S., in the Avalon at Arlington Square community. The street serves drivers heading from Army Navy Drive to Glebe Road, near Shirlington.

The water flow has been shut off, but not before part of S. Adams Street partially buckled due to water pressure.

Adams Street is expected to remain closed through the evening rush hour, until about 8:00 p.m. Southbound traffic is being diverted onto 25th Street.

    “near Shirlington” is a terrible description. Probably just offended the dog walkin, flip floppin, cargo shorts wearin citizens of that fine community

      But wouldn’t “near Arlandria” offend the Avalon residents? Can’t win.

    I expected a flood of comments on this article.
