Duke Street Closed Due to Water Main Break
Duke Street is closed in both directions between S. Quaker Lane and Sweeley Street, due to a water main break in the 3100 block (near the Alexandria Commons shopping center). A detour has been established via Colvin Street; westbound traffic should turn left onto Roth Street and eastbound traffic should turn right onto S. Quaker Lane. Although repair crews may be able to establish a through lane on Duke Street, motorists are strongly encouraged to avoid the area.
Virginia American Water is on the scene and beginning repairs. No estimated duration for the work has been determined at this time. The break has affected several businesses on the south side of Duke Street, but no residential customers. For questions about your water service, please call Virginia American Water at 800-452-6863.
