Potential gas leak in downtown Eugene

A construction crew potentially caused a natural gas leak which temporarily closed the Ferry Street Bridge this morning, the Register-Guard reported.

Road closures were due to the response of emergency crew, but all roads have since reopened. The line was reportedly ruptured near Broadway and High Street but the origin is still unknown.

All emergency response has cleared the area and the construction crew at the future Whole Foods site in the area is continuing work.

More to come.
