Traffic is flowing normally again on Interstate 95 between the Bond Brook overpass and Exit 112 in Augusta following a tanker crash early Friday.

The truck, which was hauling 3,800 gallons of Nopcote, a finishing agent used in paper making, overturned about 2 a.m. Friday and spilled about 400 gallons of the chemical into a ditch that feeds Bond Brook. State environemental officials worked to contain the spill, but an unknown amount did make its way into the stream.

Traffic continued to be backed up on the interstate Friday evening, but all lanes were open today with no delays.
