Gas Leak on Scott Street

There are several reports of a gas leak on Scott Street east of Island park. Possibly the construction people hit the wrong pipe, or the ground subsided and broke a gas pipe after sewer work. Anyway, whatever the cause, the closest houses have been evacuated and you should use some other street to get to the neighbourhood (Scott is closed from Northwestern westward).

  1. Looks like traffic is moving through Scott again. Though there is a police car on site, as well as lots of construction equipment.
