The road amongst Mud Volcano and Fishing Bridge Junction will remain temporarily closed while park employees evaluate the impacts of a gasoline spill from an overturned tandem trailer on a commercial motor car or truck.
This segment of highway closed on Thursday, August 27, shortly just after the incident occurred.
National Park Service crews responded immediately.
Whilst the industrial motor vehicle was transporting unleaded gasoline to services in the park, the tandem trailer flipped over on the west aspect of the road and approximately 3,000 gallons of unleaded gas was produced.
There is no evidence that gasoline entered the Yellowstone River.
This incident continues to be less than investigation and the park has no extra information to release.
Mud Volcano is open and can be accessed from the north.
The East Entrance Road to Fishing Bridge Junction is open. Visitors can also access Fishing Bridge Junction from the south.
