Gas leak closes Peachtree City shopping entrance on Hwy. 54

by From Staff Reports - news@newnan.com

A shopping entrance off State Highway 54 has been closed just across the Coweta County line in Peachtree City due to a gas leak.

At 11:12 a.m. Peachtree City Fire Rescue responded to a reported gas line struck during a construction project near the entrance to the Walmart shopping center located at 2717 west Highway 54, said Peachtree City authorities.

As a result of the leak, the main entrance into the shopping center at Highway 54 and Planterra Way has been closed temporarily. Drivers are asked to use the secondary entrances along Highway 54 and off of Macduff Parkway.

The employees of the Chase Bank have chosen to close during the affected period. Gas company officials on the scene have confirmed that there is a break in a 2-inch service line. They could not provide an estimated time until the line is repaired and the road is re-opened.
