FHP: Northbound Sunshine Skyway reopened to traffic

Officials asy northbound Interstate 275 traffic on the Sunshine Skyway is moving after a long backup triggered by the investigation of a possible suicide attempt.

The Florida Highway Patrol says it received a call about a possible suicide just before 7 a.m. Wednesday. No details on the investigation were available.

About 8:30 a.m., the Florida Department of Transportation tweeted that traffic on the bridge was backed up into Palmetto due to “police activity.”

The highway patrol said the road was reopened at 9:31 a.m.
