Crews work Monday at the site of a gas leak on East Fort Avenue in Locust Point. A contractor's work struck the gas main; 1,200 homes and businesses in Locust Point will lose gas for several days, according to Baltimore Gas and Electric. (Algerina Perna / The Baltimore Sun / November 7, 2011)
South Baltimore customers who still lack service should contact BGE at 1-800-685-0123 to schedule an appointment for mechanics to reactivate their meters and light pilots on gas appliances, according to a statement by the utility.
More than 200 people, including personnel from utilities outside Maryland, worked to restore gas service, which was disrupted Monday after a bridge contractor accidentally broke a 12-inch gas main in the 1200 block of E. Fort Ave.
