Gas Main Break Update

On August 26, 2014 just after 11:15AM, the Joplin Emergency Communications Center received a call that a gas main located near the intersection of Junge and Maiden Lane had been ruptured and was leaking. The intersection was closed while emergency crews worked to resolve the issue.

As of 3:20PM, Maiden Lane is open for traffic. The outside southbound lane at Junge and Maiden Lane continues to be closed meaning there will be one lane of traffic open for southbound traffic. Also, Junge is still closed from Porter to Cunningham. Drivers should find an alternate route if they need to go east or west from the intersection of Junge and Maiden Lane. Drivers are encouraged to use 10th or 20th Streets. We anticipate these closures to last into the evening hours.
