TULSA -- Northbound lanes of the Creek Turnpike near 71st Street have closed after a chemical spill.

Officials said a truck carrying 550 gallons of bleach heading toward Arkansas spilled a couple ounces around 1:30 p.m.

Officials said bleach has the potential for toxic fumes so hazmat is cleaning up.

Officials said they caught the truck early and pulled it over. They said it could have all leaked if they didn’t catch him so soon.

Lanes are back open and a small portion of one northbound lane is closed but no traffic or congestion here.
