Eastbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike between the Downingtown and Valley Forge exchanges were closed for more than seven hours Tuesday after a crash involving a tractor trailer spilled a shipment of dish soap on the roadway.
No injuries were reported in the crash, which was reported about 2:20 a.m. Tuesday at milepost 317.
The eastbound lanes were closed from about 3:30 a.m. until nearly 10 a.m., said Kathleen Walter, a Turnpike Authority spokeswoman.
Jugs of dish soap spilled on the roadway when the trailer of a rig involved in a crash with a car apparently hit the abutment of an overpass and split open.
Walter said there was no estimate as to how much soap lathered the roadway.
