WASHINGTON — Crews are working to fix a partial road collapse on 17th Street, NW, about a block from the White House.

As a result, 17th Street, NW remains closed north of Constitution Avenue, between C and E streets.

Northbound diverts at C Street. Southbound 17th Street diverts at New York Avenue.

Eighteenth, 15th and K streets are open.

The problem developed before 5 p.m. Tuesday. DC Water estimates 17th Street should reopen next week.
