As readers know, Edsall Road between S. Van Dorn and S. Whiting near I-395 remains closed Thursday while crews finish repairing last night’s MAJOR water main break in Alexandria, Virginia.
Work is almost complete on repairs to the water main as well as the two broken valves in the immediate vicinity of the break. However, crews still must finish repairing the roadway after the repairs to the water main are complete. Expect Edsall Road to remain CLOSED through the beginning of the evening rush hour.
Now, Virginia American Water has issued this boiling water advisory for the immediate area around Edsall Road
Almost finished repairs. If you are still without water now, we anticipate water to be back on between 3 and 4 pm today.
