Highway 30 is closed in both directions at NW 26 Avenue east of the St. Johns Bridge in Portland following a tanker truck crash.

The cash spilled several thousand gallons of asphalt oil onto the road.

Oregon Department of Transportation's Don Hamilton said he expected the road to remain closed for several more hours, although single lanes may open up when it is safe to do so.

A HazMat team is on the scene working on the cleanup.

West bound traffic is being rerouted to Nicolai and east boud traffic is being rerouted to 29th Avenue.

Travelers should expect delays.
