Several downtown office buildings near 11th and Main in Kansas City, Mo. have been evacuated. 

Construction crews hit a gas main this morning.  Gas company crews are now repairing the leak. 

Hazmat units are on the scene and will check the safety of the area before workers can return to their buildings.
