Poor visibility closes section of Alligator Alley
Poor visibility forces FHP to close section on Alligator Alley in Collier, Broward counties
A portion of Alligator Alley has been closed for a second time this week due to poor visibility.
The Florida Highway Patrol says a section of Interstate 75 between Mile Marker 101 in Collier County and Mile Marker 23, which is the U.S. 27 exit, in Broward County is now closed.
Motorists are asked to seek alternate routes.
Troopers suggest taking Exit 101 in Collier County to U.S. 41, which is the Tamiami Trial, to head east. Westbound motorists are urged to head south on U.S. 27 to State Road 997, which is Krome Avenue, then south on Sate Road 997 to westbound U.S. 41.
The highway was also closed early Monday due to fog and smoke from a nearby brush fire.
