LONGBOAT KEY - The gas leak that shut down traffic on Longboat Key Tuesday morning has been mitigated.

The intersection of Gulf of Mexico Drive and Broadway was closed in both directions after a construction crew ruptured a natural gas line at around 9:30 a.m.

Crews from Longboat Key Fire, Teco, Sarasota and Manatee counties work to mitigate the leak.  

The scene was clear by 1 p.m.
