U Street-Florida Avenue NW between 16th and 18th Street was closed during Tuesday evening rush hour due to a water main break. The break, where Florida Avenue merges into U Street, shut off traffic from about 3:45 to 5:45 pm. DDOT has photo of the actual break site.

Last Friday a 20-inch water main broke on the 1800 block of 14th Street NW.
