LORENA (November 7, 2012)--Repair crews were busy Wednesday morning repairing a severed natural gas line that a construction crew cut while working along Interstate 35.

Atmos said it could take until Wednesday night to complete repairs.

The company said it was sending a tanker truck to provide temporary service to residents whose gas was cut off because of the line break.

Lorena police and firefighters were sent just after 10 a.m. Wednesday to Market Street, near Cedar road, where the crew that was working in the area cut an underground gas line.

Because of the break southbound I-35 exit 322 is closed, the southbound I-35 service road is closed from Center Street to South Bordon Street.
