A portion of Kildaire Farm Road was closed Tuesday afternoon in both directions following a gas line break.
Authorities closed Kildaire Farm from Commonwealth Drive to Wrenn Drive following reports of a gas line break near Brady Court, according to a town press release.
City officials asked people in the immediate area to seek shelter and detoured traffic to Executive Circle and Farmington Woods Drive.
A crew is expected to have the road reopened after the evening commute, the town said.
Commuter traffic was congested and creeping slowly by late afternoon.
Authorities had not yet said what caused the incident.
