Original Story: A natural gas leak in Davis has forced the closure of part of Anderson Road as Pacific Gas and Electric performs emergency trenching to repair the damage Saturday morning.

The leak was found under the bike path at the southeast corner of Anderson Road and Corona Drive, Davis Fire Department reported on Twitter about 2:30 p.m.

No evacuations have been called, according to Davis police. The work will take several hours.

The closure on Anderson Road, between Valencia Avenue and Bianco Court as well as the Corona Drive corridor, may cause traffic delays. Police are urging residents plan alternate routes.

A representative for PG&E could not be immediately reached for comment.
