A truck is leaking fuel onto I-495, prompting a closure of two southbound lanes under the George Washington Memorial Parkway in McLean.

Two right lanes on the I-495 Outer Loop are currently blocked, as crews work to plug the leak and contain the spilled fuel, according to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department.

Emergency responders from Arlington and Montgomery counties are assisting with the effort.

The department says several units are returning to service, but workers are expected to remain on the scene for “an extended amount of time.”

“Consider seeking an alternate route,” the FCFRD said.
