Part of Glebe Road Closed Due to Gas Line Rupture

(Updated at 3:20 p.m.) Glebe Road has been temporarily closed south of Columbia Pike due to a gas leak.

Initial reports suggest a road construction crew struck an unmarked 2-inch gas line, rupturing it.

Police and firefighters have closed the stretch of Glebe between Columbia Pike and 12th Street S. to traffic while crews work to shut off the gas. There’s a strong smell of natural gas in the area, and pedestrians are being limited to one side of the street.

Drivers, particularly those heading northbound on Glebe, should expect delays in the area. Northbound drivers are advised to use Walter Reed Drive as an alternate route.

Police say they expect the road to remain closed until at least 4:00 p.m.
