We got word this morning of a gas leak at the intersection of Hicks and Joralemon streets. National Grid spokeswoman Karen Young emailed an update moments ago:
A contractor working at Hicks and Joralemon damaged a gas main. It happened around 8 a.m., the gas leak was secured around 8:45 a.m. National Grid crews replaced the damaged section of the main. Natural gas service was interrupted to 1 building (a 3 or 4 family residence). The crews are wrapping up and should have gas service restored to the building within the next hour or so.
