    Route 202 in Litchfield has reopened after an oil spill.

    The road was shut down between Route 209 and North Shore Road, but reopened around 7 p.m.

    Crews from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection responded to the scene as well.

    According to the DEEP, the nozzle fell off a Bantam Fuel oil delivery truck allowing oil to spill onto the roadway around 3:15 p.m..  In all about 20 gallons spilled, DEEP said.

    The oil caused a slippery condition, which led to an accident, according to DEEP.
