Gas leak blocks traffic on 23rd Street

February 14, 2014


A gas leak caused Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical officials to block off traffic from Ousdahl to Iowa streets along 23rd Street this evening.

The leak was reported just before 7 p.m., said Capt. Joe Schaumburg. Black Hills Energy shut off the gas around 8:30. Schaumburg said a line in front of Yokohama Sushi, 1730 W. 23rd St., may be the source of the gas leak.

A crew from Black Hills Energy is currently performing an assessment on the leak. Traffic will remained blocked until the source is found.

Safety be damned, just don't annoy me. Or in any way inconvenience me, I'm much to important for that.
