State police in Washington County closed an exit ramp from Interstate 70 Monday morning in South Strabane because of a gas leak, officials said.
The ramp leading to Route 19 closed about 9 a.m. while crews from Columbia Gas work to fix the problem. The ramp is near a Home Depot, Washington County officials said.
The South Strabane volunteer fire department was also on the scene, officials said.
The ramp was open again after noon, and repairs were expected to be completed by 4 p.m., said Brynnly Schwartz, spokeswoman for Columbia Gas. A third-party contractor working in the area triggered the leak, she said
