Palm Beach Outlet gas leak forces lane closures

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A gas leak forced evacuations and lane closures in West Palm Beach Monday.

Workers at the new outlet mall at 1801 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., nicked a gas line.

Two weeks ago crews at the construction site cut a gas line.

Evacuations were ordered as a precaution.

The westbound lanes of Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard were closed to traffic, but if there are no complications the lanes should reopen by 1 p.m.
