Ruptured natural gas line forcing limited evacuations uptown Charlotte

Posted: Updated:

A ruptured natural gas line is forcing some limited evacuations in uptown Charlotte Thursday afternoon.

The gas line was ruptured in the 300 block of E. Trade Street outside of the Charlotte Transportation Center.

That section of E. Trade Street is already closed to traffic in both directions due to construction of the CityLynx Gold Line.

It is not known how many people were being forced to evacuate surrounding businesses.
