      A natural gas leak is creating a traffic nightmare in west toledo.

      Crews have closed Upton Avenue just north of Central Avenue at The I-475 underpass.

      I-475 has been closed in both directions from Douglas Road to the I-75 split.

      The natural gas leak was caused by crews working on the I-475 construction project.

      A 16 inch gas main was reportedly struck this afternoon around 2:30pm.

      Toledo Technology Academy on Upton Avenue is being let out early because of the gas leak.
