MANSFIELD, OH (WOIO) - The intersection of North Main Street and Longview Avenue was closed Monday in Mansfield.
The closure was the result of a damaged gas line.
Around 9 a.m., a third party contractor hit a Columbia Gas line while working in the area, police said.
Several nearby businesses were evacuated as a precaution for several hours Monday morning.
Columbia Gas crews have repaired the 8 inch gas line, and gas service has been restored.
