Around 3:15 on Wednesday afternoon construction crews hit a gas line near the intersection of Kearns Boulevard and Cooke Drive. Crews hit the line while working on the pedestrian tunnel which will go underneath 248 near Park City High School.

Park City Police and Fire Departments closed Kearns Boulevard shortly after learning of the leak. Dominion Energy arrived on the scene and was able to cap the gas leak a little after 5:00 pm.

During that time traffic was rerouted between Sidewinder Drive and Wyatt Earp Way and later Sidewinder and Comstock Drive.

Officials evacuated four homes and about 30 people, other residents living on Cook Drive were also encouraged to leave their homes.
