Davis police are shutting down a portion of the city’s downtown area streets as crews investigate a “hazardous material incident” near University Lodge.

The affected area is along B Street between 1st and 2nd streets, which has been completely blocked off, according to police, and the majority of the block has been evacuated.

Police have no reason to believe there is any fear of damage to the surrounding area, they said, but they are asking people to avoid it due to traffic concerns.

There is no estimated time as to when the streets will reopen.
