Portion of Interstate 81 Near Strasburg Reopens

All northbound lanes on Interstate 81 near Strasburg have now re-opened.

This after a tanker truck overturned just after midnight Friday, spilling thousands of gallons of a highly-flammable diesel fuel additive called xylene.

The spill shut down northbound lanes for the entire day Friday and backed up traffic for 11 miles.
