Yesterday, Caltrans said, “Thanks to the quick response of hazmat crews, the harmful materials have been contained for the moment and the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife says that no hazmat entered the river or any nearby isolated pools.”

This morning those same travelers will be crowding through the one lane bottleneck where the accident occurred. Expect heavy traffic for some time.
