-95 NB shut down in St. Lucie County

PORT ST. LUCIE - Northbound lanes of I-95 are shut down at the St. Lucie West overpass after a fire damaged the bridge.

The fire started in a trailer used to haul tires, and burned so hot some pieces of concrete fell from the overpass.

Drivers are encouraged to use the Florida Turnpike as a detour.  It is expected that the bridge will be closed all day.

I-95 southbound lanes are not affected.
