A hazmat spill is causing quite a back-up on I-20.

Shreveport Fire Department spokesman Fred Sanders tells KEEL News an 18-wheeler leaked some type of corrosive onto the roadway on I-20 W at Jewella.

The SFD Hazmat Team is assessing the trouble, and an outside agency may have to be called in to clean up the liquid. Meantime, police are rerouting traffic on the interstate. You'll have to exit at Greenwood Road until the problem is resolved.
