Update: The gas leak is plugged and traffic is flowing normally on Northgate Drive.
The southbound lanes of Northgate Drive at Patricia Drive are temporarily closed due to a gas line break. A contractor working for the state highway department hit the line in the 1300 block of Northgate Drive just before 2:30pm while taking core samples of the road. Centerpoint Energy personnel are on the scene addressing the leak. Bossier City Fire Department personnel are also on scene. Its unknown how long the road closure will remain in effect. The northbound lane of Northgate Drive is open. I will keep you all posted on the situation.
