160-gallon diesel spill diverts traffic to 1 lane near Martinsville

Posted: Updated:

A hazardous materials team is working on cleaning up a 160-gallon diesel spill on FM 95 following a truck wreck three miles south of Martinsville Wednesday afternoon.

According to TxDOT spokeswoman Kathi White, no injuries were reported but traffic is diverted to one lane as crews work to clean up the spill.

TxDOT is conducting milling work at the intersection of US 59 and FM 819 is Lufkin and has reduced both the northbound and southbound lanes of US 59 to one lane. White said the traffic signal at the intersection has been set to continuous green lights for US 59 traffic to minimize delays, meaning all FM 819 traffic must turn right onto US 59. This work will be completed Wednesday, White said.
