SUBURBAN BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - UPDATE: The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says the plaza and nearby roads have been reopened.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says the Flakowitz plaza in suburban Boynton Beach has been closed and evacuated due to a gas leak.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue said its crews were dispatched to Hangen Ranch Road and Venture Center Way where they discovered construction workers had struck a 4-6 inch natural gas line.
A HazMat team is on scene and Florida Public Utilities is also sending a crew to help seal the leak.
As a result, PBSO says Hagen Ranch Road from Boynton Beach Boulevard south past Hagen Ranch Elementary is closed.
