Traffic Alert: Section Of Jefferson Street Closed In Lexington Due To Gas Leak
Officials said even though the gas line was properly marked, construction crews hit it anyway, which forced the evacuation of two nearby homes as a precaution.
Officials said no one was hurt.
Columbia Gas said repairs were expected to take until 8:30.m. or 9:00 p.m. tonight and that the road would remain closed until then.
Officials reminded everyone that before you dig for any reason, state law requires that you call 8-1-1 and get all underground lines and cables marked so they’re not damaged during construction.
