Un­der­ground­ing work nicks home’s gas line

Palm Beach Daily News - - TODAY - By EL­LIOTT WENZLER

A con­trac­tor work­ing on the un­der­ground util­i­ties project dam­aged a sin­gle-home ser­vice gas line at Onondaga Av­enue near Lau­rie Lane while drilling about 2 p.m. Wed­nes­day.

Sec­tions of Onondaga were closed through­out the af­ter­noon by fire de­part­ment and po­lice per­son­nel as emer­gency re­pairs were made and flag­gers di­rected traf­fic, ac­cord­ing to a town alert.

Of­fi­cers on the scene kept res­i­dents in­doors and halted ve­hi­cle and pedes­trian traf­fic to the area, said Palm Beach Po­lice spokesman Ben Alma.

The ser­vice line was nicked dur­ing cross-di­rec­tional drilling, Un­der­ground Util­i­ties Project Man­ager Steven Stern said.

At about 5 p.m., the town sent an alert that the line had been re­paired and the road was again open to traf­fic.
