TRAFFIC ALERT: Morning wreck in Yulee slows I-95 northbound for 8 hours

By Steve Patrick - News4Jax digital managing editor

It took eight hours for Interstate 95 to reopen Thursday following a crash near the State Road 200 exit near Yulee that the Florida Highway Patrol said killed at least one person.

Drivers were encouraged to avoid I-95 and use U.S. Highway 17 as an alternate route, but even with Nassau County deputies directing traffic, those lanes are moving slowly, as is SR-200/A1A in both directions.

Extra caution is urged while traveling through the area as several troopers and first responders are on scene investigating the crash.
