HICKORY CREEK (CBSDFW.COM) — Southbound I-35E near North Denton/Lake Dallas Drive was expected to be closed for several hours thanks to a fuel spill from an earlier accident, officials said.

One lane was reopened around 10:15 p.m. Sunday, according to a traffic alert from the 35Express Project.

Drivers were being directed to exit at Swisher Road, the project said around 6:30 p.m.

Officials said drivers should expect delays and find alternate routes.
