What was shaping up as a rough commute home Monday for anyone coming south into Maricopa on State Route 347 was softened when southbound lanes were reopened following an all-afternoon closure due to a gravel spill from a large truck.
Shortly before 5 p.m., crews completed cleanup of the spill near Casa Blanca Road early in the afternoon.
There was no immediate report of injuries nor explanation of exactly how the spill occurred.

This was a classic. One moron leads to 347 being shut down for hours. I thoroughly enjoyed being stuck in traffic for over 3 hrs.
