Two right lanes heading southbound on Interstate 75 in Manatee County were blocked for several hours, making the Monday morning commute through Manatee County a traffic nightmare.

According to FL511 Tampa Bay, “emergency” road construction had to be done following an overnight crash. While the first reports of lanes being blocked were released Monday morning, witnesses told the Bradenton Herald that the accident and ensuing roadwork began Sunday night.

The first notice came at about 7:30 a.m. and the scene wasn’t declared “clear” until about 12:30 p.m.

Another accident occurred around 11 a.m. near the same area around the U.S. 301 exit, but was cleared before the emergency road construction was completed.
