WATAUGA COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

Part of U.S. 221 in Watauga County was shut down Tuesday morning due to a natural gas line break.

The Watauga County Sheriff's Office said it happened near the Deep Gap sign, and will impact traffic for several hours. 

Cranberry Springs Road to Brownwood Road is being used as an alternate.

Officials say road construction was being done when crews hit the gas line, causing the break.
