The underground contractor on Woodland Avenue struck an unmarked underground gas main this afternoon at approximately 3:20 pm on Woodland Avenue just north of Hillgrove Avenue. The main that was struck was not marked by Nicor and was unknown to be at its location.
Nicor crews are currently dispatched for an emergency repair. Residents in the area may smell natural gas until Nicor crews are able to shut off the main and complete the repair. No major service disruptions are expected and the roadway was previously closed on Hillgrove Avenue due to the ongoing construction.
