The gas leak at Cool Springs and Carothers is not yet under control. For the foreseeable future (and possibly into the approaching rush hour):
1. N/B Carothers is CLOSED at Crescent Center;
2. E/B Cool Springs is CLOSED at Carothers.
Motorists are strongly encouraged to seek alternate routes. Congestion is heavy and expected to worsen.
Gas Leak is also shut down some of NB Carothers b/t Crescent Ctr and Cool Springs. pic.twitter.com/cZhSIiK1C6
