LAFAYETTE, Calif. —
A stretch of Pleasant Hill Road in Lafayette has reopened and a gas leak in the area has been capped, according to police and a PG&E spokeswoman.
A 3/4-inch high-pressure gas line at a construction site in the 1300 block of Pleasant Hill Road in Lafayette ruptured around 2:50 p.m., PG&E spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian said.
Workers from a third-party construction crew were digging in the area when the break occurred, she said.
The gas line was squeezed off and the leak stopped around 4:20 p.m., the spokeswoman said.
Sarkissian said no customers appear to have lost gas service due to the leak. vThe gas line rupture prompted police to warn residents in the area to stay indoors and close all doors and windows.
One lane of Pleasant Hill Road that was initially closed reopened around 4:10 p.m., according to police.
Anyone who smells gas in their neighborhood is advised to close all doors and windows and call Lafayette police at (925) 284-5010 or 911.
