On the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 1, a gas leak closed down Nix Bridge and Harmony Church Road. 

Allegedly, a back hoe dug into a gas pipe, leaking gas for approximately 30 to 45 minutes. The Dawson County Sheriff's Office was unable to confirm whether the accident was caused by a construction group or not. 

According to sheriff Jeff Johnson, the roadway opened around 2:15 p.m. 

Dawson County News is closely monitoring the situation, and will update the article with any new information.
