Gas Line Rupture On SR 224 Shuts Down Traffic
Traffic came to a standstill in Park City on during Thursday’s workday when a construction company ruptured a gas line along SR 224. The rupture took place at the White Barn across from the McPolin Farm. The Park City Fire District closed 224 in both directions for several hours in the late morning to early afternoon as they repaired the line.
No one was hurt and no evacuations were given.
The Park City Fire District said the gas line was complicated to repair due to adjacent gas lines. In response to the route’s shutdown traffic slowed down to a crawl on US 40 during the time.
