VIDEO UPDATE: Roads Near Gas Line Break On Tully Road Expected To Open by 1 P.M.

SAN JOSE (KRON) — PG&E Crews are hoping to restore a gas service by 7 a.m. Wednesday morning after a gas line was ruptured disrupting service and issuing a shelter in place.

The gas leak was reported at 2:54 p.m. at a strip mall in the 2100 block of Tully Road.

PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi said crews were able to stop gas flow on the 4-inch distribution line shortly after 6 p.m Tuesday.

The leak prompted the evacuation of 12 businesses on both sides of the street.

Currently East bound Tully Road at Quimby is closed as crews work to restore gas service.

Officials say a third-party contractor struck the line halting service to around 57 customers.
