From the Orleans Police:

A commercial truck traveling along Main Street between route 28 and Tonset Road, ruptured a hydraulic line, covering the road in hydraulic fluid.

The cleanup is almost complete we are awaiting a clearance from E P A to open the road.

Editor's Note - The affected area of Main Street was "dusty" both otherwise open to traffic by 11:40 a.m. when we drove to East Orleans.
