Gas leak at Raytown Road

Construction caused a gas line leak at a little before 11:30 am today. The gas leak is just South of 63rd on Raytown Road. At 12:30 pm police are diverting traffic from 63rd to 67th. Traffic was flowing again by 1:00 pm.

Eye witnesses stated they noticed a man walking quickly from the area of a white backhoe in between the Valero gas station and Sonic Drive In, have a heated discussion with other workers about a half block North of the backhoe and then that group of construction workers jog South, waving their arms and yelling for everyone to leave the area immediately.  

Later investigation by RaytownOnline.com revealed that a 1/2 inch gas line had been cut by a backhoe that was doing work as part of a project to install underground Google Fiber lines on the East side of Raytown Road.
