All lanes of traffic are now open following the gas main break that shut down traffic in the area of Tylersville Road and Pepper Pike since late Monday afternoon. 

Eastbound lanes and one westbound lane of Tylersville reopened to traffic shortly before 6:30 a.m. All lanes of traffic are expected to be open by approximately 7.30 a.m.

Gas service has been restored to all customers, but Tylersville Road remains closed while repairs are being made, according to Barb Wilson, spokeswoman for the township. 

Tylersville Road is closed at Pepper Pike in West Chester due to a gas main break, according to township officials.

Construction crews hit the line, which is about half a mile east of the intersection of Tylersville and Cox roads, while performing utility work at Voice of America MetroPark, officials said.

Motorists should choose another route of travel as officials said they are unsure of how long Tylersville will be closed.

Anyone smelling the odor of gas in homes or businesses in the Tylersville Road area is asked to call West Chester Twp. at 513-777-2231
