Bureau of Land Management Officials are closing State Route 177 for a day to clean up illegal dumping of sulfuric acid. The sulfuric acid was discovered on the Battle Axe Road trailhead parking lot.

They say the spill created a public health hazard near the junction of Battle Axe Road and State Route 177.

Cleanup is expected to be completed by June 15. The road will be closed Friday, June 14, while crews clean up.

BLM officials say an environmental emergency response contractor will excavate, containerize, remove and dispose of sulfuric acid contaminated soils at a licensed landfill.
