State police say Interstate 25 traffic is now open in both directions after a previous closure.

Earlier Thursday, all lanes were closed in both directions on Interstate 25 North and South from Mile Post 252 (San Felipe) to Mile Post 257(Budaghers) due to a commercial motor vehicle leaking liquid oxygen.

State police say the leak was due to a safety valve on the vehicle. A hazmat crew cleaned and cleared the scene, rendering it safe.

State police say that three responding officers are being treated for inhalation of fumes during the spill.
