Matt Dodge and other West River Striping Company workers use rakes and shovels Tuesday to clean up a paint spill at the northbound entrance to Interstate 29 at 32nd Avenue South in Grand Forks. A North Dakota Department of Transportation contractor vehicle hauling bright yellow road paint broke a strap Monday afternoon on the ramp, sending a container with 250 gallons of paint flying onto nearby cement and grass. The Fire Department responds to hazardous material spills in the city and worked to mitigate the spread of the paint and keep it out of storm drains, said Battalion Chief Bruce Weymier.
