WSSC employees were telling Bethesda Avenue business owners that water could be shut off on Bethesda Avenue for 30 minutes at 7:30 tonight. However, it has become apparent that it could be off for a longer period.
Water continued to flow into storm drains from a water main break under the street, which remains closed between Woodmont Avenue and the Public Parking garage entrance by Nando's.
WSSC crews say they are narrowing their search for the location of the break on Bethesda Avenue at this hour.
Five Guys aren't waiting any longer; the restaurant has closed for the night.
