    The exit 49 on- and-off-ramps to Interstate 91 South in Enfield remain closed after a tanker truck flipped over on Monday and it will remain closed through the commutes Thursday night and Friday morning as the cleanup continues, according to state police.

    The truck flipped over near Exit 49, causing 2,600 gallons of gasoline to spill, and officials from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said 1,500 tons of soil have been excavated.

    Since 2003, there have been 57 crashes between the exit 49 ramps and where they intersect with Route 5, according to the UCONN Crash Data Repository. Seventeen of those crashes were in the last three years.
