York Road in Timonium is closed in both directions just south of Padonia Road for a collapsed roadway.

Ongoing work to a watermain stopped after the line broke and the road collapsed. The collapse then caused bowing on a gasline.

The concern now is for the gas line and how to proceed. Fire officials say repairing that will take at least four hours.

Drivers can avoid the inevitable delays by taking Deereco and Greenspring roads or I-83.

Baltimore Gas and Electric and Department of Public Works contractors are working to remove the debris from the line and Baltimore County Fire officials are on scene monitoring.
