Natural gas leak at Walter Byron Park in Frisco causes partial closure

Daily News staff report

A gas leak was located today in a high pressure line at Walter Byron Park in Frisco. The leak is isolated, but repair work is needed over the next few days.

Xcel Energy was performing standard pressure testing when the leak was discovered. A Town of Frisco press release stated the leak was immediately isolated and put under control, and no Frisco residents should be affected. Xcel is currently working to get the line repaired, and expect to be done within the next few days.

The parking area and a portion of the park itself is closed to the public to allow access for workers and equipment during repairs. A small section of the park is available for public use, but town officials encourage people to avoid the area until all repairs are completed. Xcel has agreed to repair any damage caused during work.
