SB I-75 north of Monroe reopens


MONROE -- A section of southbound I-75 that had closed after tractor-trailers slid across icy roadway has reopened, Monroe County officials announced.

Tractor-trailers sliding on slick pavement caused authorities late today to direct southbound I-75 traffic off the interstate at Nadeau Road, north of Monroe.

Conditions got especially slick about 9 p.m. on an incline north of the 15 mile marker. No injuries were reported as several semis slid across I-75. 

Authorities reopened the highway shortly after 11 p.m.after the semis were removed and sand was applied to the road.
