TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – repairs are underway to plug up a gas leak on the campus of RPI.

Public safety says they were alerted to the odor around 3 a.m. Friday morning.

Crews are working to pin point the location of the leak. They’ve been focusing on this intersection of 15th and Sage and the more they dig, the stronger the odor gets.

A spokesperson for National Grid says the situation here is safe and secure.

Before they could get started on repairs, phone, cable, and city crews came in one after the other marking the whereabouts of their underground piping and wiring to avoid any punctures once crews started digging.

At last check, specifics as to how big the leak is, what caused it and how long it would take to repair were still unavailable.

Many students are still living on campus for their summer session.

A spokesperson for the college says as of now, classes are still running as scheduled and all buildings are safe to be in.
