Highway 135 still closed

November 25, 2003

Willacoochee - A portion of Highway 135 is still closed after a full tanker overturned, spilling out more than 10,000 gallons of gas.

About two miles of Highway 82 was also shut down, but reopened late Monday night. Dozens of people had to evacuate their homes and D.O.T. workers rerouted traffic within two miles of the accident.

Hazardous material crews want to make sure all of the gas is cleaned up before reopening the highway. That should be sometime Wednesday afternoon.
