Road in Superior closed due to sulfuric acid spill

TUCSON, Ariz. Federal authorities have closed a southern Arizona road until June 15 due to illegal dumping of sulfuric acid.

U.S. Bureau of Land Management officials say the dumping was recently discovered near the Battle Axe Road trailhead parking area in Superior.

They say the spill created a public health hazard near the junction of Battle Axe Road and State Route 177.

Cleanup is expected to be completed on June 14 with the road being reopened the following day.

BLM officials say an environmental emergency response contactor will excavate, containerize, remove and dispose of sulfuric acid contaminated soils at a licensed landfill.
