Tallmadge — City officials urge residents to avoid North Avenue in the area of Bierce Street following a gas main break this morning. “A contractor hit a 4-inch natural gas line,” Service Director Bryan Esler says, adding Dominion/East Ohio will make the repairs. Esler was informed of the situation in the last hour and for the time being, North Ave. is closed at Garwood Drive and all northbound traffic on North Avenue is being routed down Garwood Drive. Traffic is also blocked at Knollwood Avenue and Bierce Street as well as Heritage and Kent drives, according to a post on the city’s Facebook page.
