US 70 in Garner reopens after gas leak

GARNER, N.C. (WNCN) – A gas leak Tuesday closed U.S. 70 in Garner just east of the interchange with Timber Drive.

Garner police said the highway is expected to “be closed in both directions for an extended period.”

PSNC was on scene and working to repair a four-inch gas main cut during construction.

Officials said the road reopened around 5:20 p.m., but there is only one lane open heading east.

While the road was closed, motorists were asked to use Timber Drive or Garner Road to bypass US 70.

Vandora Springs Road was also closed between Methodist Drive and 7th Avenue.
