Gas Leak Closes East Rio Road in Albemarle

Posted: Updated:

A gas leak caused a commotion Wednesday morning along East Rio Road in Albemarle County.

Fire and rescue crews say a construction crew working to put in new traffic poles at Albemarle Square punctured a line - causing the leak.  Red Lobster and a nearby construction site were both evacuated.

It took about two hours to stop the leak.  A side entrance to Albemarle Square is expected to stay closed while the gas company makes permanent repairs.
