Buckwalter Parkway Southbound will be closed between Old Bridge Drive and Farm Lake Drive for the next several hours due to a spill on the roadway, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.
Bluffton Police Department Capt. Joe Babkiewicz said Saturday afternoon that the spill came from a trailer carrying black tar.
Bluffton Township Fire District and the Department of Transportation are working to clean up the southbound lanes, and Babkiewicz said the roads should reopen by 5 p.m.
