Oil spill causes traffic issues in East Baltimore

Baltimore city officials said an oil spill caused the closure of Monument Street early Wednesday.

Baltimore motorists should expect "severe" traffic delays on the city's east side due to an oil spill, city officials said.

Monument Street was closed to traffic in both directions early Wednesday between Kresson and Haven streets due to an oil spill, the city's Department of Transportation posted on Twitter.

"Traffic impact is severe," according to the tweet.

Motorists can consider Pulaski Highway as an east-west alternate.
