Fuel spill shuts down southbound I-35 traffic at William Cannon for hours


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Police shut down the southbound lanes of Interstate 35 near William Cannon Drive for several hours Sunday after a fuel spill from a tanker truck.

Austin Fire Department tweeted that its hazardous materials task force was responding to the tanker after it struck a median. They said the leak was from the truck’s fuel tank — not from its cargo.

Austin Police said no one was injured but the lanes were shut down to ensure safety. The lanes reopened before 4 p.m.
