WILLIAMS TWP., Pa. -

A road that was closed in the wake of a landfill spill won't reopen before the end of the year, officials said Tuesday.

The spill happened in March at the Chrin Brothers Sanitary Landfill in Williams Twp., Northampton Co.

A landslide of trash damaged some pipes and methane wells before landing near Industrial Drive, officials said. That road has been closed since the spill happened, and officials said it will remain closed until Dec. 31.
