Gas leak reported near Corby Hall
Observer Staff Report | Thursday, October 24, 2019
A section of Holy Cross Drive was closed for about 45 minutes due to a gas leak near Corby Hall on Thursday morning, according to two campus-wide emails.
The gas leak occurred when “a crew working on Corby Hall punctured a gas line while digging,” Dennis Brown, University spokesperson, said in an email.
The section of Holy Cross Drive is west of the Grotto, the initial campus-wide email said. Campus safety and utilities officials had responded to the leak at the time of the email, and campus visitors were asked to avoid the area.
About 45 minutes after the original email, the University sent out a update on the situation. The email said the gas leak had been “capped and Holy Cross Drive had been reopened.”
