Gas Leak Closes Willowcreek at Central in Portage

Portage Fire Department warns residents to avoid the area if possible

March 16, 2018-The Portage Fire Department is warning residents to avoid the intersection of Willowcreek and Central Avenue as crews work to repair a gas leak. NIPSCO crews are on scene and it is unclear how long the repairs will take according to a statement from the Portage Fire Department”

Traffic management control is on scene; however, if you can avoid the area, please do so as the intersection will quickly become congested.

Around 4pm, all south bound Willowcreek traffic will be detoured west on Central, and all east bound Central Avenue traffic will be detoured south on Monnier.

NIPSCO does not have a completion time on the project, and it may go through the evening and in to tomorrow.
