Traffic Slowed After Paint Spills

By  | 

Traffic along Texas Avenue near Villa Maria is moving again after clean-up of a paint spill.

Hazardous materials crews were called to the 2900 block of Texas around 3pm Thursday afternoon. Bryan fire crews say red paint seeped into the creek alongside Texas Avenue behind the Jack in the Box. Officials say workers at the restaurant were cleaning paint supplies nearby and the run-off made it's way to the creek.

Crews are damming the creek with dirt to stop the paint from spreading.
