CORNWALL, Ontario – The new low-level bridge in Cornwall has re-opened following a gas leak investigation.
Cornwall firefighters were at the scene earlier Wednesday, as well as officials from Union Gas.
A police officer at the scene told Seaway News a building in the area of the toll booths had been evacuated and fire officials, as well as others from the gas company, could be seen walking about the area.
Despite a call from police for motorists to avoid the area, traffic was backed up for a time.
It’s unclear if there was actually a gas leak as there was no smell of natural gas in the immediate area of the Water Street/Brookdale Avenue intersection.
