A natural gas leak in Mission Valley on Monday morning prompted the closure of numerous streets as a safety precaution.

The leak occurred at a construction site in the 500 block of Hotel Circle North.

San Diego Police reported the closure of portions of Fashion Valley Road, Camindo de La Reina, Hotel Circle North and Hotel Circle South. Drivers were advised to avoid the area.

CalTrans said there was no estimate on when the roads would reopen.
