JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A broken gas line closed a portion of University Boulevard at Barnes Road Tuesday morning.

An electrical contractor digging at 10:15 a.m. struck a 1 and ΒΌ inch plastic gas line belonging to Teco Peoples Gas at Barnes Rd. and University Blvd.

No outage or service interruptions have been reported at this time.

Eastbound University Blvd. was down to one lane with traffic backed up past Interstate 95, making it difficult to access Barnes Rd. from University Blvd. Traffic is now flowing smoothly

The broken line is reportedly under concrete and will take some time to repair. Crews on scene are digging up a sidewalk to access the broken line.
