Florida Highway Patrol has reopened some lanes on westbound I-395, SR 836 and southbound I-95 after a full closure caused by a cement truck spill Friday morning.
The spill occured about 8 a.m at the intersection of I-395 and I-95. There were no injuries but traffic was diverted so workers could clean up the spill. By 11 a.m. clean-up work had been limited to one lane on westbound I-395 leading into SR 836 and I-95.
“We’re trying to open the road as quickly as possible,” said Trooper Joe Sanchez.
The closures caused a major bottleneck as traffic was diverted to northbound I-95. Clean-up crews could be seen hosing down the roadways as Florida Highway Patrol hurried to fully reopen the highway.
