Construction Crews Hit Gas Line in Bangor 

A couple of city streets in Bangor are back open again after construction crews hit a gas line. The accident this morning forced emergency responders to close off Union and Godfrey Streets, by the airport.The two-inch line that was hit is linked to a 30,000 gallon gas tank, which feeds the entire Airport Mall and McDonalds on Union Street.Assistant Fire Chief Rick Cheverie says the wind worked in their favor by helping move the gas around and keep it at the lowest explosive level.”You never know when you have something like this here. Of course you know people aren’t supposed to smoke and occasionally they do and sometimes they put the things outside their vehicles. All it would take is something like that going into that ditch area and we could have had quite a different result.”The gas has been shut off will crews make repairs.
