Gas Leak Forces Portion Of Idalou Highway To Shut Down

We now know what caused a gas leak that shut down part of Idalou Highway Wednesday morning.

An oil well was leaking gas that formed a vapor cloud across Highway 62/82. Authorities shut that part of the highway down around 4:30 a.m. as Hazmat and firefighters ran tests. They found the cloud was Nitrogen which was not toxic in this case. The gas evaporates naturally.

The highway re-opened around 7:30 a.m.
