HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Part of Albany Avenue in Hartford was closed for most of the day on Wednesday after a gas leak.

The leak that was reported near 144 Albany Ave. around 11 a.m. kept a portion of Albany Avenue closed for most of the day. 

As of about 11 p.m., crews said they were nearing completion of the repairs.

A surveyor in the area started getting high gas readings, which lead to the investigation and discovery of the leak. 

The cause of the leak is under investigation.
