Atherton: Gas line broken by construction workers

Work was done without permits police say

A contractor doing work without permits on Southgate Street in Atherton cut into a gas main late Friday afternoon, leading police to close parts of Almendral Avenue and Southgate Street for several hours.

Atherton Police Chief Steve McCulley said the contractor has been cited and the work at the property red-tagged to stop further construction.

Chief McCulley said Almendral Avenue reopened by 5:30 p.m. but Southgate Street would remain closed for several hours between Almendral and Park Lane.

Residents are allowed to enter on foot, he said.
