Chemical spill diverts traffic in Norwich

NORWICH – Hale Street to Halfway House Road off Route 12, just south of the City of Norwich, were shut down Tuesday due to a sizable acidic waste chemical spill.



The approximately three-mile stretch of road was closed for nearly four hours while emergency crews cleaned up the spill caused by a southbound truck carrying the chemical.
