Residents who live near Estes Hills Elementary School in Chapel Hill are likely to smell gas on Tuesday after a 3″ pipe was struck as crews were milling and patching the roadway.
Authorities said Caswell Road is closed from Estes Drive to Clayton Road and Clayton Road is closed from Curtis Road to Caswell.
PSNC Energy is on the scene Tuesday afternoon to repair the break.
Town officials said while residents may smell gas, “Do not be alarmed, the breeze is helping to blow it away.” Authorities said there is no danger to the residents in the area.
The break is very near Estes Hills Elementary School, but Chapel Hill – Carrboro City Schools are on spring break this week.
A second gas leak was reported Tuesday afternoon in Carrboro. Town officials said crews were on the scene of a gas leak at Davie and Jones Ferry roads. Carrboro Police tweeted the intersection of the roadway was closed at the intersection of Jones Ferry Road and Barnes Street, Davie Road and Neville Drive, and Jones Ferry Road and the NC 54 off ramp.
