Hazmat Delay on I-95 in Stafford

A hazardous materials incident blocked all southbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Stafford near mile marker 138 earlier this afternoon, according to a wire report, Maptuit traffic reports and an e-mail alert from Stafford County.

According to the Associated Press, a dispatcher told WFLS that a truck carrying sulfuric acid was leaking and was parked on the right shoulder as authorities investigated the situation. An e-mail alert from Stafford at 3:36 p.m. said all lanes are now open, but delays are likely to continue for some time.

During the closure, southbound traffic was detoured to U.S. 1 via exits 140 and 143.
