As of 1:25 on Saturday, July 20, N. Ft. Myer Dr. is closed to motorized vehicles at its intersection with the Arlington Blvd access road. Workers are installing a water connection for a water fountain in the forthcoming children's playground the in the N. Ft. Myer Heights Park. The current estimate is that intersection will be repaved and open to motorized traffic by 5pm.
The job is difficult because the water main is exceptionally deep. Moreover, workers have discovered a leak in the water main. Well-informed persons have been aware of this leak for approximately six months.
