Gas main break at Ithaca construction site

Gas main break at Ithaca construction site

A gas main break tied up traffic and brought emergency crews to the 100 block of West Seneca Street Tuesday.

Ithaca Fire Crews were called to the Women’s Community Building construction site around 2pm after a digging machine ruptured a low pressure service feed from the NYSEG gas main to the building.

Construction crews were evacuated from the scene and Ithaca Police shut down traffic in the area to repair the pipe. The New Roots School was advised to close doors and windows to keep those inside safe.

NYSEG crews arrived on scene and shutdown the leak with a temporary patch.

All crews were clear and operations returned to normal within a half hour.
