Human waste spill makes roadway slick, blocks ramp

Updated:

An overturned semi spilled human waste all over the roadway on the southbound Interstate 5 offramp to Highway 2.

After an hours-long closure, the roadway reopened around 7:00 p.m.

Only a minor injury has been reported from the rollover that happened after noon. After nearly five hours, the highway was partially cleared, but the spillage made the road slick. 

A detour was in place while cleanup was underway.
