DC Water is still working on the “small diameter priority water mains” project on Corcoran Street NW. An area around 15th and Corcoran Streets NW was without water Monday from around 9 am to 4 pm. A crew opened a large trench at the intersection early this morning, but had temporarily paved it over by evening.
Parts of the 1300 and 1400 blocks of Corcoran have been dug up for the project. It’s a familiar exercise for residents as these blocks were among the ones that got a major refurbishing in the fall of 2009–streets, tree boxes and brick sidewalks.
