Traffic is now moving again after Saanich fire crews responded to a gas leak near the intersection of Shelbourne Street and Stockton Crescent.
Deputy Fire Chief Dan Wood said that a lot of construction is going on in the area and the high-pressure gas line was hit by a machine.
The fire department is no longer asking people to avoid the area because the incident has been resolved.
