Interstate 75 in Manatee County is reopen after a crash Thursday morning forced multiple lanes of the interstate to close.
A crash near mile marker 224 on southbound I-75 closed two lanes south of U.S. 301 in Manatee County for about two hours, according to FHP. The center and right southbound lanes closed around 11 a.m. and reopened shortly after 1 p.m.
The southbound entrance ramps to the interstate from U.S. 301 north were blocked, but have reopened.
The Florida Department of Transportation is planning a $190 million project to reconfigure the U.S. 301 and I-75 interchange, with work expected to begin in fall of 2019.
