A busy road in Orono closed by a broken gas line has reopened Wednesday.

A fiber optics crew hit the gas line around 4 p.m. on North Shore Drive, and a 1/4 of a mile radius east of Crystal Bay was closed until 6 p.m., according to CenterPoint Energy.

Boat traffic was also stopped in the nearby channel because part of the cut gas line was under the channel of water. People reported seeing gas bubbling up through the water, according to CenterPoint.

No homes were evacuated.
