‘Unexpected Bridge Work’ Closes a Block of King Street in Old Town

Some unscheduled bridge repair has led to a section of King Street near the eponymous Metro station being temporarily closed.

“Unexpected bridge repair work has closed King St. between Callahan Dr. and Commonwealth Ave,” police said in a tweet. “It’s unknown how long repairs will last. Follow detours and traffic direction in the area.”

Traffic is currently being diverted to Duke Street. Officials said the closure was partially the result of debris seen falling off one of the bridges over King Street.
