Broadway re-opens after gas leak
By Carrie Pond
Paducah, KY – The section of Broadway Street in downtown Paducah closed after a gas leak has now re-opened. There will be one-lane traffic between 4th and 5th streets until around 2 o'clock so Atmos repair crews can fix the broken gas line. Officials say the leak likely started after a forklift working at Turner Publishing hit the gas line. People who were evacuated earlier are now being allowed to return to their businesses or residences.
