GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Drivers can now travel the length of Duckworth Rd. in Gulfport without running into a police car roadblock. The road was closed between Tara Hills and Twin Dr. for more than an hour Wednesday as crews worked to repair a gas leak.

Gulfport Fire Department Battalion Chief Chris Henderson said a construction crew hit a four-inch gas line and ruptured it. We're told CenterPoint Energy quickly stopped flow on the line.

Gulfport police said the line has been repaired.
