PIERCE CO., GA (WTOC)- City
officials in Pierce County said a trailer park was evacuated Wednesday due
to a gas leak.
The Patterson Trailer Park was
evacuated after a Bell South sub-contractor's backhoe apparently struck a gas
line while digging.
They rerouted traffic on
Highway 84 through Patterson, and had a detour set up at Highway 32 and 84 to
stop the traffic.
The road was reopened to
traffic at 8 p.m. Wednesday. According to Georgia Department of Transportation,
the gas line has been repaired.
