Morning commute turns into morning nightmare for many in Lee County

Published: Updated:

Wet roadways mixed with the morning commute turned a chunk of Interstate 75 in Lee County into more of a parking lot.

Florida Highway Patrol Troopers said there were multiple crashes on southbound I-75, Thursday.

WINK News Anchor Belinda Post reported that it led FHP to temporarily close on-ramps at mile marker 136 – Colonial Boulevard, 138 – MLK Boulevard, 139 – Luckett Road and 141 – Palm Beach Boulevard.

Additionally, southbound traffic at Colonial, Luckett and Palm Beach was diverted off the highway.

The traffic nightmare eventually cleared up, and FHP reported ramps are back open and interstate traffic is once again moving by the late morning.
