York Road closed in Cockeysville because of gas leak

The northbound lanes of York Road between Warren Road and Railroad Avenue in Cockeysville are closed Tuesday afternoon to allow BGE crews to repair a gas leak, according to Baltimore County Police.

Cpl. John Wachter, a spokesman for Baltimore County Police, said that at 1:52 p.m. Tuesday, police and fire personnel responded to a call for service when construction workers in the 10500 block of York Road hit a gas line.

Both northbound and southbound lanes will run in the southbound lanes, police said, and a significant backup is expected.

Wachter said BGE crews are on the scene, but there is no timetable for repairs to be completed.
