Ruptured gas line causing delays on Highway 63

A ruptured gas line was causing traffic delays on southbound Highway 63 Wednesday afternoon.

Both the city of Ashland and MoDOT reported the leak around 3 p.m., saying it was caused by the construction site located at Liberty Lane and 63.

MoDOT had closed both lanes of traffic, but soon reopened one lane.

Due to the construction one lane was already closed before the leak.
