An Opelousas gas leak was capped mid-afternoon Wednesday after construction workers punctured a line on Main Street, authorities said.

Main Street, or Highway 182, remained closed in the southbound direction from Prudhomme Lane to Church Street as of 5 p.m., said Opelousas Police Chief Perry Gallow.

Both lanes of Main and Church Streets were shut down from about 10 a.m. until just after 2 p.m. while the fire department and Center Point Energy located the leak’s origin, Gallow said.

No homes or businesses were evacuated, Gallow said.
