Gas leak closes Broadway in Lorain

LORAIN – A portion of Broadway is closed while crews repair a gas leak.

Crews doing road work in the area struck an 8-inch gas line on Broadway at about 9:15 a.m., according to the Lorain Fire Department.

Broadway is closed at 5th Street while crews patch the line. There is no estimate on how long repairs will take, but the road is expected to be closed for a few hours.

Lorain National Bank, as well as several other businesses located at that intersection, were evacuated.

    Crews doing road work? Really! Aren’t these boys supposed to call the Gas Company before they start ripping things up?

    This must have been at 6th & Broadway. I work at library one block away, and we were not told of this, AFAIK.
