MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Emergency crews in Murfreesboro said all roads have reopened following a gas leak.
According to reports, the leak happened on Dill Lane. Crews said a strong smell of gas was reported in that area around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Authorities confirmed a construction crew cut a gas line while working on the new Ascend Credit Union building.

Police initially blocked the roadway to traffic on East Main from Arnette to Rutherford, and they added both lanes of South Rutherford were also blocked.
“Atmos Energy is now on scene,” said Lehew. “One of the issues should not take long to fix, but we may be here a while on the other one (East Main).”

A 3:30 p.m. they said all roadways had reopened.
