Miles of Oklahoma City highway coated with maple syrup, drivers urged to avoid the area

A tanker truck leaking maple syrup made for a sticky commute in Oklahoma City Wednesday morning.
 
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the truck was hauling 48,000 gallons of syrup to a Braum's restaurant when it began leaking.
 
The syrup coated several miles of I-44 between Northwest 36th Street and Southwest 89th Street before the leak was discovered.
 
Crews closed the right, westbound lane and brought in sand to clean up the mess.  That job was expected to last most of the morning.
