    Unknown substance spill closes traffic in Stone Ridge for more than two hours

    A material spill that ultimately was determined to not be a hazard to the community closed a portion of Route 50 near the Stone Ridge area for more than two hours this morning.

    At 7 a.m. the Loudoun County Emergency Communication Center received a call about an unknown substance in the road on Gum Springs Road at Route 50.

    As a precaution, the hazardous materials unit from Dulles South, along with units from Arcola, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office responded to investigate.

    Once on scene, crews found a five gallon bucket with an unknown substance in the median on Gum Springs Road.

    As soon as the product was tested by emergency personnel, it was determined the substance did not pose a threat to the public.

    The hazardous materials team contained the substance and Virginia Department of Transportation took control of the scene. There were no injuries as a result of the incident.
