Cunningham Avenue reopens
URBANA - Cunningham Avenue in Urbana has reopened after construction workers broke a gas main there Friday morning.
Traffic had been diverted from both north and south between Kerr Avenue and Country Club Drive/Perkins Road.
Workers installing fiber optic device connecting two traffic signals broke the gas main on the west side of Cunningham Avenue, according to Jeff McDuffy of the Urbana Fire Department.
No evacuations have been ordered, McDuffy said. He said the cleanup will take several hours.
Connie Laesch of Laesch Construction, the company whose workers cut the line, said the line was not marked.
