Gas leak leads to evacuations in downtown SLO
July 1, 2015
A gas leak on the 800 block of Monterey Street in downtown San Luis Obispo led to business evacuations and a partial road closure Wednesday morning.
At about 11 a.m., construction crews working on the Chinatown development project hit a two-inch gas line. Police officers and firefighters then closed Monterey Street between Chorro and Morro streets to both vehicles and pedestrians and evacuated the businesses.
Shortly after 1 p.m., the roads were reopened and people were allowed to enter businesses in the area.
