Paint spill causes shutdown on Hero Way in Leander; road reopen

A paint spill has shut down the westbound lanes of Hero Way west of US 183 in Leander, officials say. The road has since reopened.

The Leander Police Department says a commercial truck lost a "significant amount of paint" on Hero Way in front of the H-E-B.

The road was closed while crews cleaned up the paint and Leander police reported the road had been reopened around 4:30 p.m. May 8.

Leander police also reassured drivers that if they had paint on their vehicle from driving through, the paint is water-soluble and can be washed off.
