Two Scott County roads were briefly closed Wednesday during a gas leak.

Police closed off the intersection of County Roads 23 and 8 in Prior Lake Wednesday morning after a car crashed into Doherty’s Tavern, 22000 Panama Av., and hit the gas meter, said Lisa Kohner, Scott County spokeswoman.

A post on the tavern’s Facebook page said that the bar had experienced some damage but that it could reopen as soon as Thursday.

“Rest assured we are doing everything we can to get the bar up and running,” the post said.

Scott County issued a warning about the road closure about 9 a.m. Police removed the barricades and opened the roads at 10:37 a.m.
