A gas leak has been fixed on Wynnton Road between Blandford Avenue and Buena Vista Road.
The leak sprung just before drivers began heading home from work Thursday afternoon, Fire Marshal Ricky Shores said.
"A contractor was putting in a fiber optic line and hit a gas main," Shores added. "It's really more of an inconvenience at this point."
Atmos Energy responded to the scene, as did Columbus police and fire units. Shores said Thursday he expected the leak to take several hours to fix.
The road was unobstructed early today and open to traffic.
