Personnel closed Broadway between 27th and 28th streets and called for a few evacuations that were lifted shortly thereafter, according to San Diego Police Department Officer John Buttle.

Construction workers struck an unmarked gas line near 2735 Broadway around 6:21 p.m., causing the gas leak, SDPD said.
