Truck Accidentally Spills Wet Cement on Highway 71 South of Spencer

Some traffic disruptions are being reported on a stretch of Highway 71 between 460th Street and 480th Street in Clay county, south of Spencer.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office says a cement truck accidentally lost some of it’s load late this (Wed) morning. Both lanes of the highway were reportedly covered in wet cement for about three quarters of-a-mile.
