CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A portion of Montgomery Street has reopened Wednesday after being temporarily closed due to a damaged gas service line.

Montgomery Street was closed from Dale Street to Pennsylvania Avenue for several hours Wednesday morning. According to Eversource Spokeswoman Priscilla Ress, around 10:00 a.m. Wednesday morning the city’s water department was conducting work when they struck a gas service line to a house.

An Eversource crew was sent to the home and secured the area. The house is a duplex and two residents/families are affected by the incident. Ress said the gas line will be restored to the house by Wednesday evening.
