Broken gas main at Valley and Hopyard?

Original post made by just curious, Country Fair, on Jan 11, 2016

I've searched high and low to find information on the PGE "emergency" that closed most lanes at Valley Ave/Hopyard intersection Saturday morning. The "Patch" reported there was a gas main (line?) break at No Valley Trails/Hopyard that morning, but that's not where I saw the emergency vehicles and PGE trucks. A fire truck and two Ptown Police vehicles blocked the Valley Ave/Hopyard intersection at around 11 am, and two PGE trucks were there into the evening. Just curious why it's so hard for nearby residents to find out about a gas main break at the time of, or shortly after, the incident. Could it have anything to do with the fact that city-sponsored work (installation of piping for recycled water) caused the break? Where was PGE while they were digging? How did they not know where the gas main was? Lots of questions here. Any answers out there? Am I missing a critical online site for such info?
