I-75 in Sarasota reopened after closure due to smoke

Published: Updated:

I-75 reopened after a temporary closure on Friday morning.

Lanes of the interstate were opened to traffic at 9:25 a.m. after the Florida Highway Patrol closed I-75 for a 10-mile stretch between MM 195 to MM 205.

Officials decided to close the road due to low visibility from a prescribed burn in the area.

Traffic was redirected to US 41 at the time of the closure.
