All lanes of the southbound 710 Freeway in the Lynwood area were closed Friday night following an asphalt spill. The roads were expected to be closed until after midnight.

The spill happened after a big rig began leaking asphalt around 7 p.m. and the asphalt spread all over the lanes.

Traffic was routed off the 710 at Firestone Boulevard.
