Holy crap! Is this ever going to screwup traffic! I lived just a little south
of where this happened and can just imagine the hassle as well as additional
pileups as people are forced to travel roads they don't know.
Tanker & I-75 don't mix!
Transportation officials and motorists got the news they'd been fearing Thursday: Interstate 75 in Manatee County will be a mess for a month and a half.
The highway's southbound bridge at U.S. 301 will need to be knocked down and replaced after a tanker truck crashed through the guard rail and exploded under the bridge Wednesday.
The rebuilding will take six weeks. The Florida Department of Transportation hopes to open the northbound bridge to two-way travel by Monday.
