Hazardous Material Leak in Midland Shuts Down Part of Saginaw Road

A hazardous material leak in Midland has forced law enforcement to shut down a portion of Saginaw Road.

Dow Michigan Operations says one of its supplier delivery trucks began leaking a chemical compound around 12 p.m. Monday on Saginaw Road between Bay City and Salzburg roads.

While Dow says the leak is not posing any threat to the public or the environment, crews with Dow emergency services are currently on scene monitoring the situation.

That portion of Saginaw Road will remain closed while crews continue cleanup efforts.
