It has been reported that the rupture of a steam pipe caused the release of asbestos debris that has led to the shutdown of Harrison Avenue and Traveler Street. The shutdown was necessary to enable crews to transport the asbestos and dispose it properly. At the present time, crews in Hazmat suits are surface cleaning the area. Officials from the state Department of Environmental Protection and the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration are present in the area. At this time, it is unclear when the streets will reopen.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that can lead to mesothelioma disease and lung cancer. Both types of illnesses are asbestos cancers. There is no cure for mesothelioma and lung cancer. Treatment options aim to provide relief from symptoms. The mesothelioma treatment PDT (photodynamic therapy) uses light of a specific wavelength to kill cancer cells. Other treatment options include surgery, radiation and immunotherapy.
