Gwinnett County firefighters said the gas leak that shut down a section of Grayson Highway in Lawrenceville was resolved.
The highway was shut down at Applewood Drive this morning. In a tweet at 11:42 a.m., firefighters said they were gathering equipment before leaving the scene.
Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services said Lawrenceville Gas arrived to assess the damage at approximately 10:17 a.m.
