The road was shut down after a ruptured gas main was reported at about 2:41 p.m. The Lexington Fire Department evacuated Lexington Clinic Andover as a precaution, according to police.

Crews working on the gas line believed repairs could continue through the night and into early Friday morning, police Lt. David Biroschik said.
