SH 130 closed down due to fluid spill

TRAVIS COUNTY - Police shut down the southbound lanes of State Highway 130 just north of Highway 71 Wednesday afternoon because of a hydraulic fluid spill on the roadway.

Deputies said they were called out to the area at 3:30 p.m. to respond to a cement truck that caught fire.

Officials said the flames were put out quickly, but the truck did leak some fluid onto the road as a result.

The road is expected to remain closed for several hours while crews work to clean it up.

Officials said the spill would not pose a threat to local waterways, grass or wildlife in the area.
