Work Continues On Gas Main On Loras

Crews from Black Hills Energy continue to work to replace a natural gas main on Loras Blvd. The gas main, located between Montrose Terrace and Bluff Street was ruptured on September 28th by a construction crew from Price Electric. That caused a major gas leak, which later ignited and blew up a building in the 400 block of Loras and damaged a number of surrounding structures. Fortunately no one was seriously injured or killed, although one fire fighter suffered a cut to his hand. The gas main provides service to Black Hills Energy customers in the area. The company anticipates that service will be restored by the first half of next week. Once natural gas service is restored, additional concrete work will begin.
