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)

Natural gas service has been restored to almost all customers affected by the gas main break Monday in Locust Point, Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. said Thursday.

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.
