Route 4 was shut down in both directions in Elmwood Park, New Jersey Friday night because of a gas leak.

Several 911 calls were made at around 7 p.m. with residents complaining of a strong odor of gas around Route 4 and East 54th Street.

PSE & G says the leak came from a high-powered natural gas main.

The utility says no one was in danger, and no homes or businesses were evacuated.

Route 4 is also known as Broadway. The portion between the Paterson bridge to the Fair Lawn border was affected.
