Highway 242 Reopens After Crashed Big-Rig Spills Fuel, Closing Lanes

Northbound state Highway 242 has reopened in Concord after a big-rig crashed in rainy weather this morning, spilling about 90 gallons of fuel and prompting the California Highway Patrol to issue a Sig-alert while the roadway was closed for cleanup.

The crash was reported around 7:55 a.m. near the Grant Street on-ramp.

The CHP issued the Sig-alert just after 8:05 a.m., indicating that two northbound lanes were blocked as a result of the crash, and the rest of the lanes were later closed to accommodate the cleanup effort.

The lanes had reopened by about 10:55 a.m. and the Sig-alert was canceled minutes later.

Additional details about the cause of the crash or the damage it caused were not immediately available.
