The Nebraska Department of Roads crews are working on a hydraulic fluid leak that left a stripe running two-and-a-half miles in West Douglas County on Tuesday afternoon.

NDOR West Douglas County Superintendent Sam Bannister told KMTV that  an asphalt company truck leaked the fluid starting at 264th and Center, driving east a mile and a half before turning north on Highway 275 (or 240th Street) to Pacific Street, leaking fluid on the road.

Bannister said the road crews are applying a drying material to the fluid to absorb it for drivers to safely drive on, mixing it into the asphalt.

Bannister added  the asphalt truck with the leak pulled of the road east of Hwy 275 and Pacific,

NDOR is contacting the truck's owner to address the leak and remediation costs.
