A gas leak reportedly closed Person Street, near the intersection with East Morgan Street in downtown Raleigh at rush hour Tuesday evening. The road reopened by 5:30 p.m.
ABC11 reported the leak was on Morgan Street behind the Marbles Kids Museum. The television station reports that a 2-inch gas line was cut.
PSNC spokeswoman Ginny Jones said a contractor cut the gas line while working in the area near the federal courthouse in downtown Raleigh. She said workers were able to cut off gas to the area.
Jones said she wasn’t sure how long it would take to repair the line.
