Published 6:53 pm Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Part of Godwin Boulevard was closed Tuesday afternoon as crews cleaned up a hazardous materials spill.

Preliminary investigation found that a Valley Proteins open-top tractor-trailer braked for a vehicle in front of it, causing the load to shift and part of the contents, including animal renderings, spilling out onto the roadway, according to a city press release.

“The spill poses no danger to the public,” the press release stated.
