Lane of I-75 in Pasco remains closed as depression is investigated

SAN ANTONIO — One northbound lane on Interstate 75, about 3 miles north of State Road 52, remained closed Tuesday because of a depression in the roadway.

The right lane, which has been closed since Saturday, is expected to remain closed until at least Wednesday afternoon so engineers can complete their investigation into the conditions below the roadway surface, the Florida Department of Transportation said Tuesday.

Crews added barrels Monday to extend the lane closure farther to the south to prevent traffic bottlenecks. The middle lane will be closed for testing between 9 p.m. Tuesday and 6 a.m. Wednesday.

The DOT described traffic Tuesday morning as "flowing freely."
