Overturned latex tanker closes I-85 south in Gwinnett for 12 hours
Lawrenceville, GA, 1/25/06.
A tanker truck carrying liquid latex overturned on I-85 South near Ga. Highway 20 shortly after 4 AM Tuesday morning, causing the closing of all southbound lanes for 12 hours. While no injuries were reporting, it was a traffic nightmare for many thousands of commuters as Georgia DOT workers struggled to clean up and repair the damaged highway. Cleanup and repair work will continue as DOT closes one lane of I-85 South just south of Ga. 20 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to repair asphalt that melted when the tanker truck caught fire.
