Scrap Metal Spill Causes Traffic Issues

Yesterday afternoon (August 10th), a Page Steel Truck dumped its payload all over the entranceway to Page Walmart just off of US page steel sdmall pic89.

Page Police dispatched units for traffic control and the Page Steel workers began cleaning up the spill.  The truck had driven halfway down the entranceway and struck the side curb shattering the trailer. The construction on the roundabout by the Arizona Department of Transportation paired with the metal mess, caused headaches for people that had to commute through the intersection of Lake Powell Boulevard and US 89.

A line of traffic could be seen building up for over an hour in all directions as ADOT workers attempted to direct traffic.

This is the second incident in as many months involving a trailer.

Last month, a trailer nearly overturned when another driver took the same turn too sharp in his semi. There were no reports of injuries but the cleanup took over an hour.
