St. Petersburg, Florida -- Authorities have reopened Tyrone Blvd. near Park Street following a gas leak that closed the area to traffic for about an hour Wednesday afternoon.

Reports from the scene indicate a construction worker accidentally punched through the gas line causing the leak.

Traffic was being diverted around the area and pedestrians were not allowed to use the pedestrian bridge on the Pinellas Trail while TECO worked to repair the leak.
