Officials have cleaned up a “drywall mud spill” that had closed all northbound lanes of Interstate 5 near Terwilliger on Friday night, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.

At around 9:15 p.m., ODOT said crews had cleared all lanes of the muck and the freeway was again fully open.

A tractor-trailer lost a pallet of the stuff going into the curves, and coated several lanes for half a football field.
