Gas line rupture causes partial closure of State St.

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

State Street at Arlington is closed due to a gas line rupture. 

The area is just north of Baptist Hospital. Our team says it appears city crews may have hit a gas line while installing water lines. 

Atmos is on the scene working to repair the damage.

Robert Lesley, spokesman for Atmos Energy, tells us that they are estimating that the lines will be fixed by 4 pm at the latest, but it is up to the city to decide when the area will reopen.
