WARNER ROBINS -- Traffic was temporarily diverted on Watson Boulevard during rush hour Monday after contractors struck a gas line.
Montie Walters, city utilities director, said police were letting cars through a previously blocked area between Corder Road and Nelson Drive. He said gas still remains turned off for a few customers in the area as crews work to repair the line.
Walter said at about 5 p.m. he expected the line to be repaired in a couple hours. Any customers whose pilot light needs to be lit afterward should call the customer service line, and city workers will help.
Walters said a private contractor digging near Kens Audio-Video-Car Stereo struck a gas line.
