Water Main Break Closes Roads in Takoma Park

UPDATED 6.13.16  10 p.m. Water service has been restored to customers on Boston Avenue, according to WSSC.



UPDATED Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) crews are working to repair an 8-inch water main at 400 Boston Avenue in Takoma Park.

Originally, officials said it was a 16-inch water main line but during the repairs crews discovered the 8-inch line fed into the larger water main.

According to Takoma Park authorities, there are road closures in the area because of the water main break.

Philadelphia Avenue is closed between Takoma Avenue and Piney Branch Avenue. Access to Philadelphia Avenue from Boston Avenue and Baltimore Avenue is also closed, according to a note on the police department’s Facebook page.

WSSC officials said 31 customers are without service because of the water main break.

So far, no word on when repairs will be complete.
