A gas line rupture near the Mosaic District has prompted at least one road closure.
Eskridge Road is closed between Lee Highway and Williams Drive, according to Fairfax County Fire and Rescue, after workers struck what is believed to be a two-inch gas line at the intersection of Eskridge and Merrifield Town Center.
Firefighters have established a “safety perimeter” and are checking nearby buildings, including adjacent townhomes.
Drivers are being encouraged to avoid the area.
