Highway 99W through Dundee has reopened

DUNDEE — Highway 99W through Dundee has reopened after a gas leak in the area of the Dundee Fire Department closed the highway for a period of time, according to Newberg-Dundee police.

The area is experiencing severe traffic delays.

A backhoe reportedly severed a two-inch service line, police said.

No injuries were reported. Northwest Natural Gas Company and the state Department of Transportation  responded to the scene.

The necessary evacuations were made and there was no danger to surrounding residences or businesses, according to police.

"This is a good reminder to call 811 before digging so utility companies can provide locate services," a police spokesperson said.
