Evacuations have lifted after a gas main break posed a danger to residents in the area of Marina Bay Parkway and Meeker Avenue.

Richmond police said five apartment complexes were evacuated for precautionary reasons.

The leak was caused by a construction crew working on an underpass in area.

The gas leak was capped at 11:30 a.m. and the evacuation order was lifted a short time after that.
