FARMINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Both sides of I-84 and Route 9 reopened on Wednesday following a hazmat incident in Farmington, state police said.

According to Connecticut State Police, both eastbound and westbound lanes closed on I-84 at Exit 39A after a tractor trailer transporting pesticide and possible flammable substances experienced a leak. Route 9 northbound in Newington also closed down. Both lanes on I-84 and Route 9 have since reopened.

State police, fire crews, Connecticut Department of Transportation, and the Connecticut Department of Environmental and Energy Protection assisted on scene.

DEEP said that the driver of the tractor trailer, which was carrying hazardous waste packaged in boxes and drums, noticed a leak and pulled over. DEEP staff are assessing the situation and determining how to proceed.

The tractor trailer, owned by ACV, will bring forklifts and pallets to repack some of the load. The materials transported inside the truck include pesticides, paints, and flammable sand corrosives.

DEEP said there is no risk to the public at this time.
