Broken natural gas line creates safety issue in East Waco


The Waco Police Department is advising the public to avoid the area around Martin Luther King Drive, near Franklin Drive and Washington Avenue, due to a leaking natural gas line.

The line is leaking, and several streets are being shut down to all traffic for a safety precaution.

Street closures could last several hours and into Wednesday evening.

Current street closures include MLK, the Washington Street Bridge and parts of Elm Street.
