SARASOTA, Fla. - Florida Highway Patrol is warning drivers of potentially limited visibility on I-75 in Sarasota County.
The area is between mile marker 182 (Sumter Blvd.) and mile marker 191 (River Rd.) in Sarasota County, due to a combination of smoke and fog in the area. FHP says drivers should exercise caution if traveling through the area.
Similar visibility concerns led troopers to close the interstate for several hours on Saturday morning. Visibility concerns also led to the temporary closure of the interstate near the Caloosahatchee River in Lee County on Saturday morning as well.
Troopers say similar conditions may occur late Sunday night and into Monday morning, adversely affecting the morning commute. Drivers are advised to expect delays and possible road closures resulting in detours.
