A ruptured gas line snarled traffic for close to four hours Tuesday on a small section of Md. 63 near the Interstate 70 overpass.  Columbia Gas spokesman Russell Bedell said the workers damaged a 4-inch plastic gas line while working on a construction project west of Hagerstown.  He said Columbia Gas turned off service to that area while the repairs were made. The incident, which was reported shortly after 10 a.m., left about 180 customers without gas, he said.  Those who were without service had to have their gas relit by company workers after the incident, according to a news release from Columbia Gas.  Although traffic flowed in the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70, Md. 63 under the highway overpass was closed for almost four hours.
