Traffic is moving slowly on the A39 in Street after an incident has partially blocked the road.
The road which is one of the main commuter routes through the area is blocked near the Clarks Factory entrance.
A spokesman from Avon and Somerset Police said: “It appears that there has been one tonne of mud or top soil deposited off the back of a lorry.
“This is near the entrance to the Clarks Factory and is currently being cleared by the council.”
This is causing disruption to traffic travelling eastbound.
