Washington and St. Clair streets remain closed due to gas leak in downtown Toledo


Washington and St. Clair streets remained closed at and near their intersection into the Friday evening rush hour because of a gas leak that remained under investigation.

Chris Kozak, a Columbia Gas spokesman, said that as of 2:30 p.m., 60 of 81 customers affected by a ruptured gas main at the intersection had service restored.

He estimated the street closings would last until 6 p.m., when repairs would be complete.

The main was struck by an excavation crew Thursday evening. The exact cause and circumstances of that accident remained to be determined, Mr. Kozak said.
