Gas Leak Reported at Dixwell, Whitney Avenues in Hamden

A gas leak caused traffic backups during the evening rush hour at Dixwell and Whitney avenues in Hamden Monday.

The Southern Connecticut Gas Company responded around noon to repair a leak after reports of the odor of gas. While the road remained open, there were lane closures and heavy traffic congestion in the area during the evening commute.

Crews have since cleared the scene and the intersection is open.

The cause of the leak was not immediately clear.
