Water Main Break in Bethesda (PHOTOS)

watermainbreak2UPDATED Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) crews remain on the scene of a water main break in Bethesda at River Road and Wilson Lane.

According to WSSC officials, the broken water main line is 62-years-old and repairs are expected to be complete later this evening.

Earlier this morning, there were road closures in the area because of icy and slick conditions.

Repairs were slow going because of the extremely cold conditions and the age of the pipe, officials said.

There are 91 customers impacted by the break, according to WSSC. The water should be back on tonight.
