Gas Leak Closes Sections of Broadway

Paducah, KY – A gas leak in downtown Paducah has closed a section of Broadway Street until further notice. Atmos and Paducah Power crews have closed the street between 3rd and 5th streets as they work to repair the leak. Officials say the leak likely started after a forklift working at Turner Publishing hit the gas line. There will be intermittent power outages and interruptions in gas service along Broadway between 3rd and 7th Streets as crews continue repairs. Motorists are advised to use caution while driving on the Broadway, as several traffic signals are out at intersections near the leak.
