SALEM, OR (KPTV) - A Salem roadway will be blocked for a couple of hours Tuesday morning after a tanker truck overturned.

The Oregon Department of Transportation says a tanker hauling liquid fertilizer overturned and closed the southbound lanes of the Salem Parkway at Liberty Street Northeast.

The southbound lanes will be closed while crews pump the liquid fertilizer from the tanker, according to ODOT.

Police said the closure will remain in place for about two hours.

A detour is in place, but drivers are asked to avoid the area or expect delays.
