Sludge spill on Interstate 10 causing traffic delays

A sludge spill on Interstate 10 near the Cowan-Lorraine Road exit is causing traffic delays in the eastbound lanes, Gulfport Police say.

About 7:40 a.m., a truck belonging to a company from Alabama spilled some sludge in the eastboound lane of I-10 near mile marker 39. One lane is blocked.

Cleaning crews are working on the spill now, but traffic is down to one lane and delays are expected.

Police said they weren't sure how long the cleanup will take.
