The natural gas line accident in front of the Embarcadero Tuesday has all been taken care of. According to city public works, a contractor installing new storm drains along the Bay Road was working in a very confined underground space, and due to utility crowding, they accidentally damaged a 4-inch natural gas line.

Northwest Natural responded to the scene and turned off the line and made the repairs. Crews worked through the early morning hours to get everything back to normal.

City Public Works Director Tim Gross says the project is part of a larger storm drain problem that’s needed major work for years. The project will funnel storm water from high atop John Moore Drive down to The Embarcadero, then underneath and into the bay. There will be also be other connections into the system that will help better drain areas just off East Olive. Completion is many months away.
