NORFOLK - A busy intersection at Old Dominion University closed just before noon Wednesday because of a gas leak.

Virginia Natural Gas officials say a third-party contractor hit an underground gas line on W. 45th Street near the intersection with Hampton Blvd.

Police closed that intersection so crews could get to work to stop the leak and then make repairs.

The incident hasn't affected summer classes for students.
