Motorists are advised to avoid westbound South Street from the Green to Pine Street on Thursday morning. As of about 10:30 a.m., Morristown police report that police, fire and PSE&G personnel are addressing a gas emergency. Detours will be in place.

Town Administrator Jillian Barrick said the water utility, the Southeast Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority, was working in the area last night, and a gas leak was identified Thursday morning.

“The area is safe and area businesses are open. But the street will remain closed to vehicular traffic as the repairs are completed,” Barrick said.
