(UPDATE, 1:30 p.m.) The westbound lanes of River Drive North between 9th Street and 15th Street have reopened, however, cones are still in place for a small section of the outside lane.

Drivers are asked to use caution in the area.

(1st Report, 12:51 p.m.) Authorities have closed a portion of the westbound lane on River Drive North.

Great Falls Fire Rescue reported the section between 9th Street North and 15th Street North is closed due to a possible hazmat call.

Crews were called to the scene around 12 p.m. for a truck leaking fluids.

An environmental clean-up company had a leak in a container that spilled 40 gallons of product, according to GFFR. The product may have flowed into a storm drain so crews are taking samples.

The westbound lane along River Drive North is currently closed.

Drivers are advised to find an alternate route or expect delays.

We will update you with any new information.
