All lanes of southbound I-5 near the Tacoma Dome have reopened after a fuel spill early Monday morning, according to the Washington Department of Transportation.

Around 3 a.m., State Patrol Trooper Brooke Bova tweeted that a crash at the Tacoma Dome caused a hole in a fuel tank, which leaked more than 150 gallons of fuel onto the highway.


While the crash itself only affected one lane of traffic, clean-up required multiple southbound lanes to be closed for about 90 minutes.

All lanes are back open for the morning commute.
