By The Staff

Officials at the Los Alamos Department of Utilities have reported a gas leak in the vicinity of Central Avenue and 20th Street requires immediate repair and will shut down a portion of Central Avenue Saturday between 7a.m. and 5 p.m.

Natural gas service will be unvailable to utilities customers in that area while the repair work is underway. As more is discovered, utility officials warn that the worksite may expand or change.

 Traffic will be diverted on 20th and 15th Streets to Trinity in order to bypass the work zone. Pedestrian traffic will be allowed in the area, but gas safety measures will be in place to prohibit smoking or open flames in the vicinity.

DPU can be reached by dialing 311 or via e-mail 311@lacnm.us.
