A natural gas leak has reduced traffic to one lane in each direction on a portion of Hickman Road in Des Moines.

MidAmerican Energy says it was notified at 10:38 a.m. that a third party contractor had severed a gas line in the 1900 block of Hickman. Gas to the line has been shut off while crews made repairs.

The road had earlier been completely closed from MLK Jr. Parkway to the east entrance of Broadlawns Medical Center but has since partially reopened.
