    Water floods Massachusetts Avenue just past the D.C. / Maryland border after a 12-inch main broke Friday.

    One northbound lane of Massachusetts Avenue in Bethesda will be closed through the afternoon rush Friday as the result of a water main break.

    The break happened on Massachusetts near Duvall Drive, just north of Westmoreland Circle, at about 11 a.m.
