Police are investigating a gas leak that shut down traffic on Biscayne Boulevard in North Miami Beach Friday morning.
The leak is expected to cause heavy delays for most of the morning and into the early afternoon.
Crews arrived on the scene at NE 143rd Street early Friday after the road was shut down due to a "hazard alert," officers said.
Biscayne Boulevard will be closed from 135th Street to 146th Street for "several hours," according to police.
Commuters can use Dixie Highway as an alternate route, or NE 16th Avenue.
