A tanker truck filled with asphalt chemicals has overturned on Highway 71, at Huntington Hill causing the closure of the highway to thru traffic.
Crews are currently in the process of removing the spilled materials, but no specific word has been given as to how long it will be before the highway will be re-opened. No current word on the status or condition of the driver as well.
Traffic is being diverted multiple ways, but the most convenient detour will be Highway 252.
We’ll keep you updated on further developments.
