The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said at 10 a.m. that Ohio 550 and Ohio 339 will be shut down for approximately five hours within five miles of the Barlow intersection due to a gas meter being run over at the Barlow Par Mar. Gas crews are en route with equipment to dig up the shut off valve and repair the damages. There is gas spewing at this time. Barlow and Dunham fire departments are on scene as well as several sheriff’s deputies. Please stay clear of the area and choose an alternate route.
