Highway 87 reopened after spill

Due to a hazardous spill, Highway 87 was closed most of Tuesday, but reopened Wednesday morning after overnight clean up efforts, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Officials initially thought the roadway could be closed as many as two days due to the amount of oil spewed across both sides of the highway. On Tuesday afternoon, a semi truck carrying oil used for paving rolled near milepost 228, near the bottom of Slate Creek.
