UPDATE: WIlliams Blvd reopen following gas leak

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Williams Boulevard in Cedar Rapids is now open as Mid-American Energy has pinched off a gas line that was leaking since around 10 a.m. Thursday morning.  A construction company using a boring machine hit a four inch gas line on the southeast side of the intersection of Trent Street and Williams Boulevard SW.

Williams Boulevard was closed between 16th Avenue and Edgewood Road SW.  The Taco Bell, located at 3045 Williams Boulevard SW, was evacuated due to its close proximity to the gas line exposure.  Staff has been allowed to return to the business.
