Troopers have not said when they think the bridge will reopen.

FHP is encouraging drivers to seek alternate route.

First Alert Traffic's Derrick Odom says a detour for I-295 SB at Heckscher Drive may help alleviate congestion.

Those stuck on the bridge were escorted to the very right of the lanes on the bridge.
