The construction-related leak caused the road to be closed for about an hour Wednesday morning.

PLAIN TWP.  Whipple Avenue at Everhard Road NW was temporarily closed Wednesday morning due to a construction-related gas line incident.

A dispatcher with the township's fire department said the road closed about 10 a.m. and reopened about one hour later.

Officials believe the leak was related to the ongoing construction and forced the evacuation of the nearby Waffle House restaurant.
