BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Authorities say Louisiana Highway 3 near Benton is back open to traffic.
And the leak from a damaged natural gas main has been contained.
A crew was working on a water line when they hit the gas main three miles north of Louisiana Highway 160, Bossier sheriff's Deputy Rod White said.
No evacuations were ordered.
Hazardous-materials crews were called in.
As the broken line was repaired, southbound traffic was detoured via Old Plain Dealing Road and northbound motorists were directed to use LA 160.
