A calcium spill occurred early this morning in Lakefield. The township responded by spreading sand from Concession Street in Lakefield through the downtown, to approximately Buckhorn Road and County Road 18. Calcium becomes very slippery on asphalt surfaces and the sand will add some grit and help soak up the calcium. The road will be swept once road officials feel it is safe to do. Motorists are advised to be cautious in this area.
