Glue spill on Highway 92 approaching San Mateo-Hayward Bridge causes major traffic delay

HAYWARD, Calif. (KGO) -- A sticky situation caused a horrible traffic backup approaching the San Mateo Bridge in Hayward Monday afternoon.

All lanes of westbound Highway 92 in the area were closed as the CHP dealt with a glue spill, which happened as the result of a truck losing its trailer. A bucket of glue, used as flooring adhesive, fell off and splattered across the lanes.

A traffic alert was issued, but all lanes reopened by 4:30 p.m.

The glue, which was still wet, reportedly caused damage to some cars that ran over it.

Caltrans was called out to run a traffic break using an absorbent to clean up the mess.
