A water main break has shut down a portion of 1st Street NE near Union Station.
The northbound and southbound lanes of 1st Street between G Street and G Place NE are closed to traffic as workers fix the 8-inch water main. Crews are expected to finish repairs by 3 p.m., according to D.C. Water.
The nearby U.S. Government Publishing Office is without water service, a D.C. Water spokeswoman said. No other D.C. Water customers are affected.
The cause of the break wasn’t immediately clear.
