A gas leak Monday evening caused McKinley St. to close north of Lakin Ave. while Kansas Gas Service worked on repairs. The street reopened Wednesday afternoon.
Police officers directed traffic for a time, then employees from the Street Department set up barricades to close the street for the night.
An individual in the 3900 block of Forest Ave. reported a gas leak at 5:17 p.m. According to Great Bend Fire Chief Mike Napolitano, a resident reported a strong natural gas odor, and when firefighters arrived to check it out gas appeared to be coming up through an expansion joint in the driveway.
