VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Crews had to repair a gas leak on Dam Neck Road in Virginia Beach Tuesday.

Duane Bourne with Virginia Natural Gas says crews were called to Dam Neck Road and Corporate Landing Parkway at 5:31 p.m. for an underground pipeline that was damaged by a third party contractor working in the area.

Virginia Natural Gas technicians arrived at the scene about 15 minutes later. The gas leak was not a threat to any nearby residents, Bourne said.

Police shut down Dam Neck from Corporate Landing to General Booth Boulevard. Dispatchers say the scene has since cleared.
