    A gravel spill from a truck blocked multiple lanes of westbound Interstate Highway 580 in Pleasanton for nearly two hours on Wednesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

    The spill was reported shortly before 6:45 a.m. on westbound Highway 580 near the Hopyard Road off-ramp.

    The gravel was about 2 inches deep on the highway and blocked the two right lanes and the off-ramp, CHP Officer Kevin Bartlett said.

    Lanes were open before 8:30 a.m., but the CHP urged drivers to expect residual delays.
