Follow The Republic:


HOPE — A gas leak prompted officials to close State Road 9 Thursday afternoon between County Road 500N and 600N.

The leak, in the vicinity of Leonard's Tire Shop, was reported at 2:08 p.m.  Hope Police spokesman Joe Lange said  two buildings adjacent to the business were evacuated as a precaution.  

State Road 9 is expected to reopen just as soon as the leak is sealed.
