Part of Highway 79 will remain closed indefinitely as crews work to clean up a gas leak.
Around 9 p.m. Monday a business in Archer City reported the leak on South Center Street. There were reports of an odor around Oodles Grocery Store and a gas station.
The source of the smell was coming from the parking lot of Oodles.
City officials and emergency responders working in close cooperation with Archer County & TXDOT assessed the problem and took immediate action. A business owner contacted an environmental remediation specialist. Specialized trucks were also brought in to remove the fuel.
As a precaution Center Street (Hwy 79) was rerouted through a portion of Archer City and will remain closed until further notice.
Oodles and the Allsups across the street are also closed Tuesday.
