WESTPORT — About an hour after a gas leak Wednesday afternoon off North Avenue shut down a stretch of that road between Long Lots Road and Staples High School, officials announced the road reopened for traffic.

When fire and police personnel were dispatched to the scene shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday, however, school officials warned that bus routes and pick-ups at Staples High and Bedford Middle schools would likely be delayed.

The incident comes a week after a downtown gas leak, along with other emergency incidents, triggered hours-long traffic chaos on the Post Road and Interstate 95.
