Gas leak closes Durham's TW Alexander Drive

Posted August 24

— A gas leak on TW Alexander Drive in Durham closed all lanes of the road on Thursday afternoon, police said.

The leak happened in the 1700 block of TW Alexander Drive near the Amazon Distribution Center. Police closed the road between Stirrup Creek and Cedar Grove drives.

Westbound traffic can take Page Road or Cedar Grove Road to Lumley Road as a detour. Eastbound traffic can take South Miami Boulevard or Presidential Drive as a detour.

The leak was caused by construction in the area. There were no injuries.

The lane of traffic was opened around 8 p.m., but due to the size of the equipment needed to complete the bypass, travel coming from the Stirrup Creek direction will remain blocked until crews finish their work.
