Gas leak shuts down Highway 133 for an hour

Highway 133 closed down for about an hour early Tuesday afternoon after construction south of Village Road in Carbondale damaged a 3-inch gas line.

12 firefighters were on site with two trucks and an ambulance, but no injuries were been reported and no evacuation orders were issued. CDOT Crews and Carbondale police routed traffic along 8th Street and Colorado Avenue, creating mild traffic snarls.

Source Gas had the line shut off and traffic resumed by 1 p.m.
