Post Road is now reopened after part of it was temporarily closed due to a gas leak in the area.
Post Road, in the area of the Fairfax Apartment Complex, was closed after construction workers struck a high pressure gas line in the area.
Two buildings in the apartment complex were evacuated. Fortunately an empty RIPTA bus was passing by and the displaced people were sheltered on the bus for warmth.
The 30 evacuated people have since been allowed to return to their homes.
