While crews were working on a construction site on Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco, California, a gas main break caused a significant leak. Authorities immediately told all onlookers in the vicinity to evacuate, and firefighters went door to door telling people to do the same. Fortunately, no injuries occurred, but the area was closed for traffic for a long period. The project is now a year behind schedule. Experts say that the workers do not have an adequate layout of the street because it was constructed so long ago.
