Local

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Crews were working to fix a gas leak that was reported Tuesday morning at the intersection of Arlington Boulevard and Dickinson Avenue, according to the Greenville Police Department.

Greenville Fire/Rescue and Greenville Utilities were on the scene. Deputy Chief Brock Davenport with Greenville Fire/Rescue told WNCT’s Ford Sanders the leak was caused by an unidentified contractor that was drilling and broke through the line.

Greenville Utilities says crews have shut off gas to six customers in that area while waiting on DOT approval for their crews to make repairs under the road.

Traffic was shut down in all directions and the intersection and was expected to be closed until the fixes were made. Only a portion of Dickinson Avenue that extends to W.H Smith Boulevard would remain closed for an extended period after the area was open again to traffic.

There were no injuries and the scene is currently under control.
