Small hazmat leak closes weigh station at westbound I-90 near Idaho border

UPDATED: Thu., Oct. 17, 2019

A small hazardous materials leak closed the Washington State Patrol port of entry weigh station on the westbound side of Interstate 90 near the Washington-Idaho border Thursday evening.

The leak had no impact on travel along I-90 or the surrounding area, according to Trooper Jeff Sevigney, a Washington State Patrol spokesman. There was no estimate as to when the weigh station would reopen.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department identified the liquid leaking out of a trailer as a corrosive aluminum cleaner, KHQ reported.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department was dispatched at about 4:45 p.m., according to dispatch logs.
