Traffic is backing up on Highway 16 in Terrace following a gas leak reported this morning.

The leak was reported at the Frank St. railway crossing intersection with the highway just west of town.

Terrace RCMP officers and members of the Terrace fire department are at the location.

The leak was caused by crews working in the area who promptly reported the incident,” reads a report from the RCMP this morning.
