Lanes reopened around 9:20 a.m. Wednesday after a fuel spill on I-35W southbound.

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, affected lanes along the interstate near 50th Street in south Minneapolis were temporarily closed due to the spill.


The Minnesota State Patrol said troopers responded to a three-vehicle crash just after 7:15 a.m. and found a commercial vehicle had one of its gas tanks punctured in the crash, causing the spill.

The State Patrol said the tow company and MnDOT worked to clean the fuel off the highway.

Two people were transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
