UPDATE 12/14/2019, 3:31 p.m.: Work has been completed. Capitol Highway is now open in both directions.
Southwest Capitol Highway between Southwest Huber Street and Barbur Boulevard is closed in both directions. There are no impacts to Barbur Boulevard. The street will be closed for several hours due to a broken gas service line.
NW Natural is repairing the gas line and our crews will then repair the street.
The traveling public is reminded to stay alert and use caution as traffic may suddenly slow or stop. To avoid traffic delays, travelers are encouraged to use alternate routes around the work site.
