RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A gas leak forced emergency responders to close Capital Boulevard near the interchange with Fairview Road Thursday morning.

Raleigh police said the leak, reported before 10 a.m., was caused by a backhoe.

The leak originally closed all of Capital Boulevard but police reopened the southbound lanes just before 10:30 a.m.

All lanes were reopened at 1:15 p.m.

CBS North Carolina will update this story as more information becomes available.
