Armstrong entrance shut down

Emergency personnel closed down the intersection of Highway 97 And Smith Drive because of a natural gas leak

The primary entrance to Armstrong was shut down earlier today.

Emergency personnel closed down the intersection of Highway 97 And Smith Drive because of a natural gas leak.

Mayor Chris Pieper says the incident occurred when a gas line was struck during construction at the McDonald’s site.

The evacutation of 11 businesses was undertaken as crews repaired the gas line.

But business was back to normal just over an hour later.
