In Maryland, crews are working to repair a gas main leak on Route 355 in Gaithersburg.

One lane of the northbound side has reopened between Travis Avenue and Professional Drive, and traffic is beginning to move as normal, though the northbound side in the morning is not the heavily traveled side of the road.
