SARASOTA COUNTY - Part of I-75 in south Sarasota County will close again tonight so repair work can continue from that dump truck crash into an overpass last week.

At 11 p.m., crews will shut down I-75 southbound lanes at Exit 191.

Traffic will be diverted down River Road to U.S. 41, to Sumter Boulevard and back up to the interstate.

I-75 will re-open at 4 a.m.

The same detour will happen tomorrow night, and F-DOT hopes to complete the repairs by Saturday.
