MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A construction mishap caused a gas leak, and traffic troubles, near the University of Minnesota Sunday afternoon.

A crew hit a natural gas line near the corner of Huron Boulevard and Fulton Street Southeast in Minneapolis.

Firefighters checked the air quality and said there was no reason for concern.

Since the fire rigs stayed on scene until the line was patched, it slowed traffic down in the area, temporarily closing the Huron Boulevard exit on Interstate 94.
