A Lynchburg city crew working on a water line ruptured a residential gas line Tuesday morning. The incident happened along Rivermont Avenue. The city says they were working on a water line when an excavator struck a Columbia gas line, tearing it in half. "Squeezers" are currently on the gas line, meaning the leak is currently contaIned. Traffic was shut down for a while on Rivermont but the roadway has since reopened. City crews are still working on the water line.
