Water main break causes traffic delays in Dumfries

The break happened about 1 a.m. along the northbound Route 1 near the intersection of Wayside Drive in Dumfries.

Three commercial businesses are without water at this time. No residential service has been impacted.

Crews say the break likely happened due to the age of the cast iron pipe. Repairs are expected to last throughout the day.
