Police reroute traffic and firefighters stand by at the Billings Logan International Airport after workers demolishing an old hangar struck a gas line Monday afternoon. A track hoe could be seen parked near the remaining walls and the odor of natural gas drifted onto North 27th Street.

Traffic entering Billings Logan International Airport was rerouted after a construction crew accidentally cut a natural gas line Monday afternoon.

At around 2:30 p.m., contractors “nicked the line” as they were working on a new employee parking lot at the airport, said Kevin Ploehn, the airport’s assistant director of aviation and transit.

While the cut line did not affect flights or other airport operations, traffic entering the airport was rerouted to the west, around the operations and into the airport until the was repairs were completed, by around 4:45 p.m., Ploehn said.

A crew from Montana-Dakota Utilities worked to shut off the gas.

The new parking lot is being constructed to the east of the roundabout at Airport Road.
