UPDATE Monday, Dec 31, 10:45 a.m.: Water service has been restored and traffic is now open in both directions on Haycock Road.

UPDATE 10:00 p.m.: The City’s water conservation request has been lifted. Haycock Road continues to be closed while crews work on fixing the break.

Haycock Road is closed in both directions in Falls Church this evening after a water main break at the intersection of Haycock and Route 7, City of Falls Church officials report.

Some Falls Church Water customers might be experiencing low water pressure, officials say. The affected areas are detailed in the shaded area of the map at the link http://bit.ly/12YNgu3. Those affected are being asked to conserve water. The area includes a northern boundary of I-66, a western boundary of I-495, a southern boundary of Rt. 29 (Lee Highway/Washington St.) and the eastern boundary of Falls Church at Seven Corners. City officials say the water is safe.

    Haycock Rd is now open and water service has been restored to the local area! A big thanks to the crews that worked through the night and the News-Press for helping us get the word out.
