Crews have capped a gas leak that started in downtown San Jose late Tuesday morning and prompted shelter-in-place advisories for nearby residents and businesses.
The West Grand Avenue approach to the Bay Bridge in Oakland was closed Tuesday afternoon because of a gas leak, according to PG&E and Oakland police.
A gas leak that prompted a shelter-in-place order in a Brentwood neighborhood Tuesday afternoon has been contained and the order lifted, according to a Contra Costa County Fire Protection District spokesman.
San Jose fire crews were responding to a gas line rupture in the city’s Alum Rock neighborhood Tuesday morning, a fire dispatcher said.
Crews were responding to a high-pressure gas leak in Lafayette, and residents in the area have been advised to stay indoors, police said.
Both the contractor and PG&E crew failed to call 911 immediately after the gas leak.
The construction crew stuck a four-inch natural gas line Burlingame Avenue and Primrose Road at 4:37 a.m. causing a large amount of gas to be released into the air, according to PG&E.
PG&E finished repairs to a broken gas line that triggered evacuations in Richmond Friday morning.
An evacuation order was lifted and roads mostly reopened Wednesday afternoon after a gas line that was accidentally ruptured by a construction crew Wednesday morning in Alamo was capped.
PG&E cut off the flow of gas to a pipe that was broken in Concord Friday morning and is now working on repairs, a utility spokeswoman said.
