PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Southwest Capitol Highway was closed in both directions for most of Saturday between Southwest Huber Street and Barbur Boulevard due to a gas line break.
The Portland Water Bureau announced the closure just after 9 a.m. on Saturday morning. They said their crews had to wait to repair the street until after NW Natural finished repairing the gas line.
After an almost 7-hour close, both lanes of traffic were reopened just before 4 p.m.
