UPDATE: Semi leaking fuel on I-90


DANE COUNTY (WKOW) -- An oil leak backed up traffic on Interstate 90 in Madison during the afternoon rush.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says a semi ruptured its fuel tank on eastbound I-90 close to where it crosses the Beltline.  It happened around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

Crews had to shut down one lane of the highway to clean things up.

Both lanes were able to reopen about an hour and a half later.


DANE COUNTY (WKOW) -- Dane County officials say they've received a report of a semi leaking fuel on I-90 eastbound at mile marker 144.

The State Patrol says traffic is expected to be backed up for about an hour. The semi with a ruptured fuel tank is on the shoulder and the freeway is only 2 lanes at that location. Cars are moving over from right lane into lane one, resulting in delays.
