Northbound 3rd Street Tunnel is now open north of Massachusetts Ave. The southbound 3rd Street tunnel remains closed between New York Avenue and Massachusetts Ave.

Crews spent Monday trying to find the source of the leak – but were able to begin making repairs on  Tuesday.

On Wednesday, they announced that an eight-inch main running through the tunnel had been fixed.

They say the southbound tunnel lanes will likely remain closed for several days.
