Broken Gas Line Closes Portion of University Boulevard

Part of University Boulevard in Wheaton, Md., was shut down Monday morning as crews work to repair a broken gas main.

Washington Gas crews had to dig on both sides of University Boulevard to access the broken gas line.

Officials say a WSSC contractor struck the gas line at 1 a.m. Monday while working to replace an entire section of a water main.

All affected lanes re-opened just before 9 a.m.
