KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — A natural gas leak prompted road closures in Kalamazoo Monday.

The leak along Portage Road near E. South Street was discovered around 10:30 a.m. The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety says a construction crew accidentally severed the gas line.

Parts of Portage Road and South Street were shut down while the leak was “mitigated.”

South Street is still closed between Portage Road and John Street. It’s not yet known when it will reopen.
