Interstate 81 bridge closed after accident

September 05, 2012

Northbound Interstate 81 at the Potomac River bridge was closed briefly Tuesday morning as the result of an accident on the bridge, a Washington County 911 dispatcher said.

No one was hurt in the accident, which occurred at about 7 a.m., but a passenger vehicle did leak oil on to the bridge deck, which required clean-up by the Williamsport Volunteer Fire Co., the dispatcher said.

One lane was reopened shortly after the crash occurred and both lanes were open by about 8 a.m., the dispatcher said.
