FDOT Announces Re-Opening Of I-75 In Florida From Mile Marker 179 to 193

Motorists should avoid I-75 between mile markers 179 and 191. As motorist safety is the top priority, the Florida Department of Transportation and Florida Highway Patrol will continue to monitor the river and bridge. FDOT is in contact with WAZE, Google, and Apple Maps.

After close coordination with the Division of Emergency Management and Florida Highway Patrol, the Florida Department of Transportation has determined that water levels have receded far enough at this time to safely reopen I-75 from mile marker 179 (North Port / Toledo Blade Blvd) to mile marker 193 (Englewood / Jacaranda Blvd) for motorists on both north and southbound lanes.

IT IS CRITICAL TO NOTE, as the height of the river continues to change, FDOT may enact future closures as necessary to ensure safety. FDOT and FHP have personnel on-site constantly monitoring the height of the river and the related stability of the bridge.

Motorists should continue to regularly check www.FL511.com and @MyFDOT for updates to road closures, which are frequently changing as Florida recovers from Hurricane Ian.
