Responding to a gas leak reported shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Rector Place and West Front Street in Red Bank, a crew from New Jersey Natural Gas Company stopped the leak at 5:44 p.m. Details about the incident were not immediately available. The Red Bank Fire Department also responded.
The intersection is one of two now closed to traffic for reconstruction in conjunction with utility work on the new Hubbard’s Bridge that has detours in place for two-to-three weeks, causing significant traffic delays. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
