Interstate 35 closed due to gas leak
PLEASANT VALLEY (AP) - Both directions of Interstate 35 in Clay County near Liberty are closed because of a gas leak near road construction.
The highway was closed about 8:30 a.m. Monday between Interstate 435 and Missouri Highway 152. Fire officials say it's unclear how long the highway will be closed.
The Kansas City Star reports a spokeswoman for Missouri Gas Energy said a contractor tore a 12-inch steel pipeline near Pleasant Valley. The 18-inch tear sent gas into the air near the interstate.
No injuries have been reported and MGE says the problem did not cut off service to any customers.
