Delays on Sam Newell Road in Matthews

Traffic delays are likely for the next few hours on a portion of Sam Newell Road in Matthews due to clean-up from a fuel spill last week, police say.

Traffic control is being used on Sam Newell Road just south of East Independence Boulevard until about 3 p.m. The southbound lane of the road is closed, so crews can complete the clean-up from last week.

A tractor-trailer ruptured a tank last week and spilled some fuel on the road.
