Alligator Alley partially closed by truck fire

The eastbound lanes of I-75 (Alligator Alley) are shut down near the 47.8 mile marker due to a tractor trailer fire, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Alligator Alley connects Naples and Miami.

A detour has been set up at the 80 mile marker for eastbound traffic. Eastbound traffic is being diverted onto State Road 29. Detour vehicles should travel south on S.R. 29 to U.S. 41 and turn left (east).

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