Repairs will begin as early as Tuesday on a State Road 84 ramp at Interstate 95 after a fatal accident that left a bakery truck dangling over the edge for hours early Wednesday.
Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman Barbara Kelleher said repairs were on hold until a hazardous-materials crew could dig up the soil under the spot where the truck was hanging due to diesel fuel and engine fluids that leaked from the truck.
The accident, which killed one person, happened on the westbound ramp to State Road 84 from northbound I-95.
About 10 feet of concrete barrier wall will need to be replaced on the right shoulder. “There will be intermittent closures because they are going to try and work from the outside,” Kelleher said.
Repairs are expected to take no more than a day or two, Kelleher said.
