Edison: Crews Fix Gas Leak On Vineyard Road.


EDISON, NJ – It took about two hours for utility crews to repair a gas leak on Vineyard Road Monday morning, according to officials.

Township officials said police received a report of a gas odor on Vineyard Road just after 6 a.m. Monday morning.

Police and firefighters closed a two-mile section of the road from Old Post Road to Route 27 as Elizabethtown Gas workers isolated the leak and opened manhole covers to vent, Capt. Andrew Toth, head of Edison’s Office of Emergency Management said.

Readings on the residential side of the road did not show appreciable levels of natural gas and there were no evacuations, officials said.

In addition to Edison police and firefighters, the Middlesex County HazMat Team also assisted at the scene.

“Early this morning we responded to a report of a natural gas odor in the area of Vineyard Road in Edison,” Elizabethtown Gas Spokesman Duane Bourne said. “Our first responders performed an inspection and pinpointed the source of the leak. Elizabethtown Gas is dedicated to the safety and reliability of our natural gas system, and we are currently making repairs to the natural gas line.”

The section of road was closed and repairs completed in just under two hours, officials said.
