I-75 SB lanes reopening after hazmat spill in Henry County

HENRY COUNTY, Ga. — A hazardous material spill on Interstate 75 led to all lanes closing in both directions in Henry County late Thursday night into Friday morning.

Triple Team Traffic’s Mike Shields said the northbound lanes opened up around 4 a.m., and the rest of the lanes and exit ramps on the southbound side reopened around 6:15 a.m., according to Triple Team Traffic.

Triple Team Traffic is LIVE with ways to get around until the cleanup is done, on Channel 2 Action News This Morning.

The Georgia Department of Transportation 511 website showed the spill had shut down lanes between State Route 20/SR81 at Exit 218 all the way to Hudson Bridge Road at Exit 224, causing miles of traffic delays.
