UPDATE: 11:30 am – Williams has shut off the natural gas, so the East Valley Highway is back open. Thank you to East Pierce Fire, Williams and Sumner PD for the response and safety precautions.

The East Valley Highway is closed from 8th Street/Stewart Road to Forest Canyon Road due to a natural gas leak.  This is a leak on the distribution line for Williams, and does not involve PSE.  Williams is aware and en route.  Sumner Police estimate needing to keep the road closed approximately until noon for safety until this is repaired.
