A gas leak has resulted in the temporary closure of a UA-Pulaski Technical College building. Pulaski Tech officials say that the campus will be closed tomorrow as well.
The Little Rock-South campus, located on Interstate 30, experienced a gas leak earlier today. Classes in the building were subsequently canceled or moved to a different location.
According to UA Pulaski Tech Director of Public Relations and Marketing Tim Jones, the issue is not a safety matter. He says the gas problems have mainly resulted in a loss of hot water, but that college officials have decided to delay reopening to fully repair the issues.
An update from the college reads, “Gas is turned off at LR-South and the situation is being assessed. The building will remain closed until all utilities are restored.”
The UA-PTC Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management Institute, which is adjacent to the closed building, has not been affected. The culinary institute building has been used to house classes, which are currently in the midst of final exams.
