New Hartford Police are asking motorists to avoid the Wilbur Road area for the next several hours due to a motor vehicle accident and fuel spill.

The North-South Arterial is closed in both directions starting at the Yahnundasis intersection to the Town Line.

The “cloverleaf” Rt 5/8/12 interchange is also closed.

There are reports that 100 gallons of diesel fuel spilled on the highway.

The New Hartford Fire Department and State DEC are on the scene.

Police say expect delays and plan accordingly if traveling in that area.
