Some commuters are being forced to find a new route home Monday evening.

A natural gas leak at 142nd and Douglas in Urbandale has closed the intersection.

MidAmerican energy says a contractor hit a six inch gas main.

The closure is expected to last a few hours while crews fixes the leak.

Drivers are being urged to avoid the area.
