Police have closed a section of N. Glebe Road where it intersects Lee Highway after road construction crews hit a gas line.
Crews accidentally hit the line near the Wells Fargo bank, leaving a distinct odor of gas in the surrounding area.
Officers have shut the northbound lanes of N. Glebe Road near the accident, while firefighters are on scene out of an abundance of caution.
Workers from Washington Gas are at the scene to fix the leak. The road construction continued as normal on other sections of N. Glebe Road.
Drivers should seek alternate routes and expect delays.
