A concrete reason to avoid Rte. 1 north in Peabody today

State Police report having to shut down Rte. 1 north at Forest Street around 2 p.m. "due to a cement truck that spilled a load of wet cement across the roadway."

actually its a concrete mixer truck. cement is a totally different substance.

my conspiracy theory is that they purposely (pretending to be an accident) spilled their load while stuck in traffic. those trucks can only mix for about an hour before they start to harden and they are very expensive to buy a new one.

probably quicker/easier to pay a fine and clean up.

Seems unlikely to have much traffic on rt 1 north in Peabody at 2pm the day after new years.

I'm calling BS.

If a cement truck driver actually wanted to do this, they would pull into a parking lot. Much less chance of causing a fatal accident.

Where I am, our REs check the slips and allow up to 90 min.

If they get turned away, they can go wash out the truck at an appropriate location, not across the road.

Looked like it was a dump trailer, not a mixer. Usually they line the bed with plastic, but todays tailgates are tighter,
