News Release
Gas line struck on Shevlin Park Rd east of the Mt Washington roundabout 2/22/24 (Photo) - 02/22/24

Bend Fire is currently on scene of a gas line struck by contractors installing the new sewer line along Shevlin Park Rd. Shevlin Park Road is now closed in both directions between the roundabouts at Mount Washington and Northwest Crossing. We are asking drivers to avoid the area. Bend Fire is providing safety support to cascade natural gas as they work to stop the leak.

initial reports indicate this is a 6 inch gas line. The brake is a ways away from buildings and homes and is not posing in immediate threat at this time. But the odor of gas is detectable in the area. We suggest anyone living in the area to keep all their doors and windows shut as a precaution and keep the smell out. No evacuations or orders to shelter in place have been issued at the time of this release.

As more information becomes available, we will update this release. At this time there’s very limited access to the area for the Media due to the location of the break and roads of the incident.

 UPDATED INFO- the line was confirmed by CNG as a 4in line not 6. CNG is estimating 1-2 hours before the leak is stopped.
