A truck carrying cement debris and large cement blocks from a nearby construction site suffered broken equipment and dropped part of its load in the intersection of Pine and Broadway Wednesday afternoon.
Police were forced to block lanes of traffic in all directions at times during the cleanup as construction workers from the site arrived to help clean up the mess. Officers also grabbed shovels themselves to help clear Broadway as quickly as possible.
The incident began just after 3:30 PM and estimates at the scene came in at around 30 minutes for a hoped clearance of the main debris area on E Pine.
A commercial vehicle enforcement officer was being called to the scene to investigate.
