I-10 was closed in both directions between Highland Road and Hwy 73. LSP Hazmat, APSO Hazmat and DEQ responded to the scene worked with the Fire Departments to mitigate the incident and due to the remote location along I-10, Unified Command requested the Geismar Fire Department to assist with water hauling for protection measures during the offloading of the product.
