Crews Work On Exposed Gas Line In Black Forest

An emergency gas line repair is causing some road closures in the Black Forest area.

Traffic is being detoured off Burgess Road just east of Black Forest road. The detour takes drivers south onto Teachout Road, then west on McFerran Road and back onto Black Forest Road.

The closure is expected to be in place through most of the day Friday.

We're told crews working to widen the road found some exposed gas lines. The gas company says no one was injured and no customers are without gas.
