VIENNA — A tanker accident around midnight on Tuesday, Nov. 15, forced a day-long closure of U.S. Route 50 west in Vienna.

The rescue and recovery effort for the crash, and the subsequent roadway repair to the only usable lane in the work zone prompted a detour that routed all traffic north on MD 331.
