NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) -

Crews secured a gas leak on Remount Road Wednesday morning that hindered traffic in the northbound lanes.

The leak near Pullman Street was selaed around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, almost 24 hours after it started. Crews worked overnight Tuesday to try and fix the leak, according to SCANA spokesman Paul Fischer. 

SCE&G crews responded to the 1600 block or Remount Road at approximately 10:45 a.m. Tuesday, after a third-party contractor digging in the area struck and damaged a gas line, Fischer said.

Earlier, North Charleston Police spokesman Spencer Pryor said one northbound lane was open at Attaway from Rivers Avenue to North Rhett.
