Update at 4:35 p.m. — One westbound lane is now slowly getting by the scene of the water main break.

A water main break in Virginia Square is snarling traffic on Washington Blvd, and will continue to do so through the evening rush hour.

Westbound lanes of Washington Blvd have been closed between N. Kirkwood Road and N. Lincoln Street. Traffic heading eastbound has been reduced to one lane.

There’s no word when the road will re-open, but a crew will remain on the scene making repairs at least through rush hour.

    Finally, something else besides a flipped SUV causing a traffic backup

      well, there was an SUV that crashed into a contractor van this morning at that location. looked like it hit a patch of ice from the water main break and skidded across the street into oncoming traffic.

        RU sure it did not skid on a spilled Froyo?

  • Hannibal

    Did the construction at Virginia Square cause or contribute to the break?
