FLOWERY BRANCH - The Georgia Department of Transportation said a portion of Friendship Road will remain closed until at least 7 p.m. while repairs are made to the road following a gas main rupture Wednesday morning.<br />
GDOT's Teri Pope said the rupture occurred around 10 a.m.<br />
"A city of Buford contractor was working along the newly-opened lanes of State Route 347 when they hit a gas main - a six inch gas main," said Pope.<br />
She said the pressure of the leak damaged the roadway, so even though the leak has been stopped, there will still need to be repairs made to the road.<br />
At last report, the eastbound lanes of Friendship Road (SR 347) are open, but the westbound lanes between Highway 211 and Spout Springs Road are closed.<br />
