Bridge reopened after crash involving jackknifed semi caused delays in morning commute

A semi-truck jackknifed in a crash on the Howard Frankland Bridge on Tuesday morning and caused major delays for drivers headed into Tampa.

Multiple northbound lanes of Interstate 275 on the bridge connecting St. Petersburg to Tampa were blocked Tuesday morning after a semi-truck jackknifed in a crash. As of noon, Florida Highway Patrol reported all northbound lanes were reopened.

The incident occurred around 8:15 a.m., according to FHP.

ABC Action News traffic reporters said at one point, it would take two hours to cross the bridge because of the crash.

With all lanes reopened, the flow of usual traffic should return.
