BEEVILLE - The Texas Department of Transportation has closed U.S. Highway 59 west of Beeville as crews work to repair a ruptured gas line.
The area is between FM 351 and FM 673. The stretch of highway will remain closed for about 5 hours due to a digger truck that hit the 2.5 inch gas line.
Officials say the immediate area has been evacuated and power is out in the area.
