Mayfair Road between North Avenue and Watertown Plank Road in Wauwautosa reopened late Monday morning after crews hit a natural gas line while working in the area, according to Wauwautosa Fire Department Assistant Chief Jim Case.

The U.S. 45 off-ramp to Highway 100 has also been reopened.

A construction crew doing roadwork on Mayfair Road hit a 4-inch gas main at about 9:30 a.m. Monday. Case said firefighters were working with We Energies to repair the break. All buildings and businesses, including Mayfair Mall, on that stretch of Mayfair Road are also open after being evacuated earlier in the day, Case said.

No injuries were reported.
