Broad River Road reopens after being shut down for gas line cut

The damage to the line happened around 11:30 Wednesday.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A section of Broad River Road in Columbia that was shut down for hours due to a cut gas line has now reopened.

The Columbia Fire Department said just after 5:30 p.m. that all lanes of Broad River had reopened. 

The cut was along a section of Broad River between Zimalcrest Drive and Seminole Road. That's just a few blocks away from where Broad River meets Interstate 20.

The fire department did not say what led up to the line being damaged. It took about six hours from the time of the cut until officials announced all lanes were back open.

This is a developing story. WLTX will post more updates when they become available.
