GERMANTOWN, TN (WMC) - The smell associated with gas leaks filled nostrils in Germantown on Friday afternoon.

Germantown police said construction workers across from the Germantown Collection shopping center hit a gas line.

Police shut down traffic on Poplar Avenue between Exeter Road and Brierbrook Road.

Workers were eventually able to turn on the gas and stop the leak, but traffic remained closed for several minutes longer as police and firefighters checked other areas in the road, making sure everything was safe to reopen.
