TYLER, Texas (KETK) – The south bound lane of South Broadway Avenue is closed due to a gas leak in the area, according to Tyler PD Public Information Officer Andy Erbaugh.

Erbaugh said that one southbound lane is still open but traffic is very backed up and asked drivers to avoid the area between the 5700 block and the 5900 block of South Broadway Avenue if possible.

“The road will be open when the gas leak is repaired,” Erbaugh said. “This does not affect north bound traffic.”
