Gas leak closes busy Memphis intersections

A gas leak Saturday morning closed two busy Memphis intersections.
 
It happened around 10:00 a.m. on Ridgeway between Poplar and Park.

Officials said a crew working to repave the parking lot at the Crescent Club building hit a pipe, causing the leak.

Police and fire workers shut down the intersections of Ridgeway at Poplar and at Park as a precautionary measure. 

MLGW workers were able to bring the leak under control by 11:00 a.m., allowing those intersections to be reopened.
