South Jordan roads reopen after construction crew hits gas line

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah - Roads are back open at 11400 S. and 3600 W. after a construction crew clipped a gas line Tuesday morning.

Authorities said a road grader hit the four-inch line at about 3:30 a.m.

Firefighters arrived in minutes to keep it from becoming a potentially explosive situation.

They evacuated residents from a nearby apartment complex as a precaution; all have now returned to their homes.

Most of the businesses in the area weren’t open yet.

Dominion Energy crews have stopped the leak and repaired the line.
