The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office reports as of 6 p.m. Wednesday all lanes of Fruitville Road east of Interstate 75 to Coburn Road have been reopened.

Due to heavy traffic at this hour, commuters are still encouraged to seek alternate routes and use detours when possible.

Through 10 p.m. Wednesday, drivers can expect all east and westbound lanes to close down again so power lines can be reconnected. Officials estimate the reconnecting should take less than an hour.
