Construction Crew Strikes Gas Main

Construction crews working on the reconstruction of Michigan Street struck a 2-inch gas main yesterday when working in the area of Grand River and Michigan Street. Captain Chris Shattuck of the Port Huron Fire Department said they were dispatched at 12:44 p.m. and arrived on the scene two minutes later. Once the line was breached, the area was cleared.  The gas line was fixed, and there were no injuries reported. The fire department left the scene at 1:41 p.m. Wednesday afternoon once the issue was resolved. Work will continue on Michigan Street with new underground service, roadway, and sidewalks.  The work is still slated for completion in mid to late September.
