Cement spill delays morning traffic near Sunshine Skyway toll plaza

A cement spill at a tollbooth on southbound Interstate 275 delayed traffic over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge on Tuesday morning as contractors worked to clean up the debris, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The spill closed the two SunPass lanes at the Sunshine Skyway toll plaza.

Motorists began complaining shortly after 2 a.m. that the lanes were slippery, not knowing it was cement that caused the slickness, dispatchers said.

Contractors were rushing to clean the drying cement.
