A tanker truck carrying about 5,000 gallons of fuel tipped over Thursday night on a Gorham rotary, forcing a shutdown of sections of routes 114 and 112 after the truck started leaking fuel. Those roads were closed until early Friday morning.

Route 114 (South Street) with Route 112 (the Bernard P. Rines Highway) are now open, according to a 2:54 a.m. email from Erin Wolfe, a shift supervisor forĀ  the Cumberland County Regional Communications Center.

A spokesman for the Maine Department of Environmental Protection said the tanker truck was transporting about 5,000 gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel. Karl E. Wilkins said in an email late Thursday night that about 1,000 gallons leaked from the truck onto the ground. The fuel that did not spill was being transferred to another tanker truck.

Wilkins said the process of transferring the fuel and cleaning up the spill was expected to take several hours.

A dispatcher for the Cumberland County Regional Communications Center said several fire departments sent crews to the scene. No injuries were reported.

The accident happened around 7:30 p.m. at the rotary that connects Route 114 with Route 112. Route 114 was shut down at Day and McLellan roads while the Bernard P. Rines Highway was closed at Narragansett Street late Thursday. Both roads are major traffic connectors to downtown Gorham.

In June 2014, a truck carrying 9,500 gallons of diesel fuel and kerosene rolled over on the same rotary, spilling 3,500 gallons of fuel onto the road. The driver of that truck, Fred Bird, told police he lost control. Bird and a truck driver trainee were not injured.
