UPDATE, Oct. 22 at 6:48 p.m. The rest stop has been reopened. The reason why it was closed off was in response to leakage of acetone from a drum that was stored in a tractor trailer, according to New York State Police Sgt. Dominic DeRocha.
The truck stopped at the area, which included an inspection station. Leaking from the drum was seen during inspection, DeRocha said.
A clean up was done and the acetone was transferred to another container, DeRocha explained.
Responding to the scene were state police, the Bedford Hills Fire Department and Westchester County's unit that handles hazardous materials, according to DeRocha.
