A passing truck spilled asphalt onto Lorcom Lane in Cherrydale earlier this morning, prompting a cleanup and causing some delays.
According to scanner traffic, the truck dropped the asphalt just after 9:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. Traffic slowed on Lorcom Lane’s eastbound lane at Nelly Custis Drive, near the Cherrydale United Methodist Church, as officers from the Arlington County Police Department cleared the debris onto a nearby sidewalk.
Police put flares out to alert drivers to the material in the road, but did not close any roads. Traffic continued to flow normally heading west.
By 10:15 a.m., police had cleared the asphalt from the street and removed the flares.
