Portion of West Broadway closed due to natural gas leak

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- West Broadway is shut down between 6th and 8th Streets in downtown Louisville, following a natural gas leak.

MetroSafe says construction workers ruptured a low-pressure gas line during work in front of the Federal Courthouse around 2:40 p.m. Monday.

The leak caused the evacuation of some nearby buildings and a shelter-in-place for others.

Crews have been working since the leak occurred to shut off the gas and make repairs.
