MIAMI, Fla. - Authorities say one eastbound lane of Interstate 75, otherwise known as Alligator Alley, is open in the Everglades after a tractor trailer fire.

The lanes had been shut down earlier in the day near mile marker 47.8. The Florida Highway Patrol says traffic is no longer being detoured.

The westbound lanes of I-75 are also open and traffic is moving normally.
