Gas line break near Fort Belvoir

By Washington Post editors

Washington Gas is working to repair a 4-inch gas line break near Fort Belvoir Town Center, U.S. Army officials report.

Fort Belvoir Emergency Services began evacuating employees and residents near the area about 11:30 a.m. Thursday. No injuries or property damage was reported.

Washington Gas completed the initial repair of the break by 2:45 p.m., and residents and employees were allowed to re-enter the area.

Officials said the intersection of 12th and Gunston was expected to remain closed for 4-6 hours while final repairs are made.

Outbound traffic on Gunston south of the incident will be diverted via Theote Road to Pohick. Traffic north of the incident will be diverted to 9th Street and onto Belvoir Road.

Visitors heading inbound to Fort Belvoir can enter through all gates except Telegraph.
