A concrete spill early Thursday closed down one lane of traffic on G Street in Merced.

The driver of a Boulders Unlimited truck apparently spilled the concrete while driving to a landscaping job on McCombs Drive, Merced police Officer Craig McKeeman said.

McKeeman was patrolling on G Street just before 9 a.m. when he spotted the spill from his vehicle.

Concrete spilled onto the roadway on G Street between Alexander Street and Alpine Drive. Concrete was also spilled on Alpine and McCombs, McKeeman said.

Boulders Unlimited officials were already working to clean up the concrete before it dried, but said it could take several hours at least.

Traffic is moving slower on G Street between Alexander and Alpine.
