Xcel has repaired a gas leak that shut down a portion of Arapahoe Road for about 3 hours on Thursday afternoon.

The westbound lanes of Arapahoe were closed from Yosemite St. to Greenwood Plaza Blvd., near the Torchy's Tacos, just before 1 p.m.

South Metro Fire Rescue says Boston Market, Chase Bank, Pinto Chiropractic, Bentley’s Pet Stuff, T-Mobile and Torchy's Tacos were evacuated.
