Westbound Palm Beach Lakes closed to traffic
A gas leak forced evacuations and lane closures in West Palm Beach Monday near the Palm Beach Outlets mall.
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.
