Section Of Tulsa's IDL Closed Briefly After Diesel Fuel Spill

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

A diesel fuel spill closed at least one lane and some on-ramps to Tulsa's Inner Dispersal Loop for several hours Wednesday evening.

The Tulsa Fire Department says just before 7:45 p.m. May 9, a truck broke an axle. That caused the truck's fuel tank to rupture, spilling diesel on the westbound north leg of the IDL.  

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol closed the westbound on- and off-ramps at Cincinnati and Detroit while crews cleaned up the spilled fuel.

The ramps were reopened Thursday at 12:30 a.m.
