Gas leak prompts shelter in place at Hall of Justice

A gas leak near San Francisco’s Hall of Justice prompted a shelter in place advisory Thursday morning.

The leak, which began just after 10 a.m., is occurring near Seventh and Bryant streets. Police have closed the intersection.

The leak appears to be associated with a nearby construction project.

PG&E crews arrived on scene as of 10:30 a.m. and had the leak capped by around 10:45 a.m., according to utility officials.

The Seventh Street off-ramp from eastbound Interstate Highway 80 was also closed as a result of the incident.
