Adding to our traffic woes on Thursday morning: There is an underground fuel leak at Larry’s Chevron at 18th Street and Alton Road.
Gas has spilled on the roadway. A hazmat team is there, sponging up the gasoline, and traffic was detoured where the Venetian Causeway turns into Dade Boulevard. Part of Alton Road was closed as well.
The entire area around Dade Boulevard, 18th Street and Alton Road is affected, and police are urging drivers to avoid the area.
