A ruptured gas line has been repaired near the G Street underpass construction project.
Subcontractors working for Teichert on the G Street underpass drilled into a PG&E gas line while they were working on exterior lighting at the nearby self-storage company. Residents of the home next to the ruptured line were observed by emergency responders, but they refused medical treatment, said Merced fire division chief Shawn Henry. The residents of the home were temporarily evacuated while PG&E crews worked to repair the line.
