Gas line break near Vista

Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (CNS) - A ruptured gas line prompted Oceanside police to shut down a stretch of state Route 76 in both directions Wednesday afternoon.

The gas line broke about 1:30 p.m. just west of Melrose Avenue. Oceanside police closed lanes from Melrose to East Vista Way, Oceanside Sgt. Rick Favela said.

Traffic in both directions was affected by the closure. Officers were redirecting traffic until repairs on the gas line are made, he said.

San Diego Gas & Electric crews were on the scene, Favela said. The affected area of SR-76 was expected to be closed until about 10 p.m.
