Asphalt spill causes lane closure on highway


A truck spilled wet asphalt Friday morning across lanes on the northbound side of the freeway where Interstate 5 and Highway 126 meet.

“Only the No. 1 lane is opened at this time,” according to Lt. Eric Lasko of Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station at about 10:30 a.m.

Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s deputies and California Department of Transportation workers responded to the scene at approximately 10 a.m. Friday.

Caltrans took over the incident to get the asphalt cleaned and all lanes were reopened by Friday afternoon.
