Preparation work for California High-Speed Rail construction resulted in a ruptured gas line Friday in central Fresno, the rail authority said.
Construction crews were doing utility-relocation work when they hit a gas line before 2 p.m., said Toni Tinoco, a spokeswoman for the rail authority. Pacific Gas & Electric and the Fresno Fire Department responded to assess the damage.
The ruptured utility was a 1-inch plastic gas line, and the gas was shut off around 2:15 p.m., PG&E spokesman Denny Boyles said.
McKinley was closed off to traffic from Golden State Boulevard to Highway 99. Tinoco said McKinley was reopened to traffic around 3:20 p.m.
There were no injuries and no one was evacuated, Tinoco said.
