Spill forces lane closure on S. College Road for hours


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Department of Transportation crews are working to clean up a spill that has forced a lane closure on S. College Road in Wilmington.

The truck hauling road paving material began to leak while traveling north on S. College Road. The driver said he thought a cleaning liquid mixed with the tar he was carrying, causing it to expand and spill over the top of the truck.

Another driver alerted him to the problem and he stopped his truck near Oriole Drive.

The spill was contained on the road but the far right north bound lane of College will be closed until crews can clean it up.
