Hallelujah! Gas pipeline to reopen Wednesday

Sep 21, 2016

ATLANTA (AP) — The pipeline company working to repair a leak that led to gas shortages and higher prices for drivers across the South says its bypass repair is complete.

Colonial Pipeline says it expects to restart its main gasoline line to start flowing agian Wednesday.

Spokesman Steve Baker says crews have been working around the clock to get fuel to markets, and that it will take a few days for the fuel supply chain to fully recover.

The 500-foot bypass will move fuel around a leak that spilled 6,000 barrels of gasoline in Shelby County, Alabama.
