DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Gas line breaks in two separate locations shut down multiple roads across Durham on Tuesday, according to police.
The first gas line break, which police announced just before 10:30 a.m., occurred at University Drive and Academy Road.
Due to that ruptured line, University Drive was closed from Old Chapel Hill Road to Dixon Road. Academy Road and Mossdale Avenue were also closed near University Drive.
Dominion Energy was able to fix the break and the roads were reopened by 1:30 p.m.
The second busted gas line was reported just after 11 a.m. in the 1900-block of Holloway Street. Holloway is closed between Hardee Street and N. Miami Boulevard, according to police.
Dominion Energy said they have crews on Holloway Street working to make repairs.
Third-party companies were at fault for both ruptures, according to Dominion.
Drivers are being advised to avoid all impacted areas.
