WHEATON, Md. (WUSA9) -- Two westbound lanes are closed in Wheaton due to a water main break, according to the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission.

The water main break is located on Veirs Mill Rd. at Connecticut Avenue. Two westbound lanes are currently closed for repairs, officials said. One lane is still getting by. Drivers should expect delays in the area. 

Nobody is without water. Crews have been having issues with the valves. A combination of cold and age is making it hard to turn the valves, officials stated. They are fixing 67-year-old pipe. It's 24 inches.
