Stevenson Expressway ramp closed for tar spill at Cicero Avenue

CICERO – The Cicero Avenue ramp to the southbound Stevenson Expressway will be closed for "some time today" while crews clean up a hazardous materials spill, an spokeswoman for the Illinois State Police said.

A tanker truck was discovered to be leaking hot tar at the top of the ramp around 8 a.m. Wednesday morning. The truck has pulled over to the side of the ramp, which has been closed by police.

As of 10:30 a.m., traffic near the ramp entrance remained slow.
