Road closed while gas leak repaired (updated)
Fourth Avenue, or Highway 22, in west Clanton was temporarily closed Tuesday because of a gas leak.
Clanton Police Chief Brian Stilwell and Chilton County Schools Transportation Supervisor Jason Griffin said the road was closed from the area near the bus shop to Hannah Street.
The closure began about 2 p.m.
“The Clanton Fire Department and Clanton Police Department have the area blocked off right now and an Alagasco truck is on the scene,” Griffin said Tuesday afternoon
Griffin said school buses were being re-routed to alternate roads in the area until the leak was fixed, possibly resulting in delays.
Clanton Fire Chief David Driver said the leak was fixed around 4 p.m., but the two westbound lanes were still closed as of 4:15 p.m. as workers tried to patch the hole up around the leak.
