DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — A natural gas leak shut down T.W. Alexander Drive in Durham Thursday afternoon and evening, but amid official predictions that the entire road would be closed into Friday, the road reopened westbound before 9 p.m.
T.W. Alexander was closed between Stirrup Creek Drive and Cedar Grove Drive.
Durham County officials said that the damage, which was located near the Amazon Distribution Center at 1733 T.W. Alexander Drive, was due to construction.
There were not any injuries or environmental damage reported as a result of the leak.
The road fully reopened early on Friday. Traffic is flowing in both directions and the repair work is complete.
