The Golden Mile Highway and a YMCA building in Plum reopened after a contractor struck an underground, high-pressure gas main Thursday afternoon, Allegheny County 911 supervisors said.

The call came in shortly after 1:30 p.m. in the 2200 block of Golden Mile Highway (Route 286), dispatchers said.

The YMCA East Suburban Program Center was temporarily evacuated and the road was closed between Kane Road and Pine Valley Drive for several hours.
