Update: Garners Ferry Road Reopens After Gas Leak

A ruptured natural gas line caused traffic delays Tuesday morning along Garners Ferry Road.

Columbia, SC (WLTX) -  Garners Ferry Road has reopened after a natural gas line rupture blocked traffic for over an hour.

The leak was in the 7800 block between Hazelwood Road and Pineview Road, which is near the Bi-Lo Shopping center just outside the Columbia city limits.

All lanes in that area were blocked. However, at 11:30, all traffic was allowed to resume as normal.

Firefighters say at this point, they believe a construction crew in the area struck the line and caused it to rupture.
