Gas Leak Forces Evacuation of UVa Dining Hall

September 10, 2007

A University of Virginia Dining Hall was evacuated Monday evening after a gas leak.

Officials said construction workers doing work between Alderman Rd. and Observatory Circle struck a high pressure gas line.

It took about an hour to seal the line and people were allowed back in the dining hall.

McCormick Road between Alderman and Observatory Circle was closed while crews finished the repairs.
