A Wednesday morning gas leak temporarily closed part of Route 31 in McHenry, according to police.
McHenry police asked drivers to avoid Route 31 between Veterans and Prime parkways at about 5 a.m. Wednesday.
An alert at 5:45 a.m. said the road reopened, but drivers should use caution as southbound Route 31 traffic was being directed to use the center line.
Public Affairs Officer Patrick Polidori said by 2:30 p.m., Nicor was still at the scene.
