Gas leak leads to road closure in Southold


Southold Town police closed off Main Road in both directions between Peconic Lane and Ackerly Pond Lane Tuesday afternoon due to a gas leak.

The gas was visibly rising up from the ground in front of a home on the south side of Main Road that appeared to have construction underway in the yard. The leak was near Osprey’s Dominion.

Police said at about 12:45 p.m. that they were waiting for KeySpan to arrive on scene to assist.

No further information was immediately available.
