Mishawaka Fire and NIPSCO crews remain on the scene of a gas leak at the corner of Bittersweet Rd. and McKinley Hwy. Construction crews reportedly hit a 3-inch gas line near a gas station.

Dispatchers tell NewsCenter 16 the situation is now under control.

The area is just across the street from Penn High School. Penn tweeted that schools will dismiss as usual, but buses will be routed around the affected area.

Drivers are also asked to avoid the area. Westbound lanes of McKinley have been blocked off at Bittersweet Rd, and McKinley’s Eastbound lanes have been blocked off from Candace Lane.
