Work Crew Damages Gas Line

It happened just after 1 p.m. at 23rd Avenue and 14th Street when a crew working to install new city stop lights hit a gas line while drilling.

Traffic had to be re-routed for some time to keep ignition sources away.

Officials say the public was never in danger. Windy conditions helped reduced the risk.

It took workers about two hours to make the repair.
