Initial repair by CenterPoint Energy to be completed tonight
City of Huntsville Emergency Management Coordinator John Waldo has confirmed that CenterPoint Energy expects to complete initial repairs on the gas line along 11th Street tonight, December 8. They will place a steel plate over the road and reopen as many lanes of 11th Street as possible. CenterPoint has informed the City that they may need to return tomorrow, Friday, December 9, to continue repairs, but will again try to do so without closing 11th Street completely.
The leak was found late this afternoon and 11th Street was closed between Avenue H and Avenue J. Travelers through the area should still try to detour as much as possible, especially with the prospects of increased weekend traffic and additional visitors for graduation at SHSU on Friday and Saturday.
