Things are back to normal in the area of Sherbooke between West Hill and Cavendish, both ways, in NDG.
There was a gas leak.
"At around 11 today there was construction on Sherbooke and there was a gas leak. So, some construction people hit a pipe", said Montreal police spokesman Jean-Pierre Brabant.
CJAD's Margoe Edwards was in the area of the leak.
"I just headed down West Hill and you could smell it in the air", said Edwards.
No one was hurt.
Some nearby homes were evacuated.
