Plow truck causes gas leak on College Highway in Southwick

Hampden County

A gas leak prompted Columbia Gas Company to shut off gas service in the 500 block of College Highway Tuesday night.

Columbia Gas spokeswoman Tracy Stefanowicz told 22News, “a gas line was impacted, and it may have involved a snow plow.” The leak was reported just after 7:30 p.m.

A bike business at 512 College Highway was affected by the leak, Stefanowicz added. 

Southwick Police confirmed with 22News that College Highway was closed in the vicinity of the 500 block, but has since been reopened. Stefanowicz said that the repair crews had to shut off gas service and to assess what needed to be done to make the necessary repairs.
