Tulsa Police have reopened a stretch of South Lewis Avenue under the Broken Arrow Expressway, after a gas line break overnight.

Hazmat crews responded to the area around 2am. They secured the area while Oklahoma Natural Gas workers arrived.

Crews made repairs and had South Lewis between 13th & 15th streets opened by 6am. The on-ramp from Lewis to the Broken Arrow Expressway is also open.

Officials say city crews repairing a water line break accidentally ruptured the gas line.
