WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A natural gas line that ruptured around lunch time and caused parts of Eastwood Road to be closed has been repaired.
According to David Hines with the Wilmington Fire Department, construction crews scrapped the gas line and caused the leak while moving a trench box.
Crews closed Eastwood Road from Military Cutoff Road to Rogersville Road because of the 6" ruptured gas line. Hines said the leak was significant. Rogersville Road remained open during the incident, but the Eastwood Road entrance into Mayfaire was not accessible.
No citation was issued and no injuries were reported.
