The area of S. Tejon and Ramona in Colorado Springs is open again. The area was closed earlier because a construction crew hit an abandoned natural gas line.
The area is near I-25 and Highway 115.
Springs Utilities says the line the construction crew hit is small and part of a "natural gas service stub," or a dead end in the natural gas line that has been capped off. If the line is hit, some residual gas can still escape, according to Utilities.
HAZMAT crews and Colorado Springs Utilities responded.
No one was hurt.
