ROY, Utah, Nov. 3, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — The southbound Interstate 15 offramp at 5600 South in Roy remains closed Sunday morning after a Saturday morning traffic accident that turned into a hazmat spill, officials said.

A tweet from the Utah Highway Patrol Sunday at 10 a.m. said: “We are currently working on opening up the southbound I-15 5600 South offramp, in Roy. Thank you for your patience this morning.”
