MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A natural gas leak has forced the closure of a section of Collins Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach.

Both northbound and southbound lanes are closed to traffic from 167th Street to 172nd Street.

This is going to cause a major hassle for morning commuters in the area. They are urged to leave extra time. The initial estimate is that the road may be partially opened by 10 a.m.
