I-10 ramp at exit 75 remains open after non-hazardous spill

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - What looked like chemicals spilled on an I-10 off ramp in Jackson County caused some anxiety Tuesday afternoon.  The three piles of sandy white substance turned out to be nothing more than rock salt according to the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol first alerted drivers on Twitter of a potential chemical spill at the 75 mile marker, the Franklin Creek Road exit.  The ramp was closed for a short time as the MDEQ was called to investigate.
