EL PASO, TX (KTSM) — A gas leak near the Five Points Transit terminal in Central El Paso prompted facility evacuations Tuesday morning. An El Paso Water Utilities crew was working construction when they ruptured a gas line. Sun Metro's public affairs coordinator Laura Cruz-Acosta said the rupure was minor.
She confirmed buses were being detoured from the terminal. Staff was on site assisting passengers.
The outbound, north side of the Five Points Transit Terminal is open, but the south side, inbound is closed. Passengers needing to catch one of the buses traveling Downtown can board on Yandell.
More details will be provided as they become available.
