Interstate Closed After Gasoline Spill

UPDATED — Both lanes of Interstate 80 re-opened by 4:30 a.m. on Monday.  No traffic problems have been reported since the highway was cleaned from the tanker truck wreck.

1/4 — Part of Interstate 80 in Columbia County is closed due to a tanker truck rollover and spill.

I-80 East and West, between the Buckhorn and Lightstreet exits is shut down.

The wreck happened around 4 p.m. Sunday near Bloomsburg.

According to emergency dispatchers, the tanker truck was headed east when it rolled over. The truck was carrying around 8,500 gallons of gasoline.

There is no word on how much of that load spilled or when the interstate will reopen.

We want to remind drivers to take their time during the icy conditions.
