Multi-vehicle crash involving RV shuts down NB Howard Frankland bridge

All northbound lanes of the Howard Frankland bridge were closed Friday morning following a multi-vehicle crash involving an RV. 

The crash occurred at approximately 4:41 a.m on the stretch of I-275 north of 4th Street. Florida Highway Patrol says a car struck a furniture dolly that was in the roadway, lost control, then collided with the RV. The impact sent the RV into the center median barrier wall. The RV also collided with a pickup truck, which overturned. 

The crash closed all northbound lanes of the Howard Frankland Bridge stretch of I-275. 

Traffic was diverted onto the Ulmerton and Roosevelt exits.

Traffic on Gandy Boulevard and the Courtney Campbell Causeway is experiencing major delays as a result of the detours from the crash.

Several lanes on eastbound Howard Frankland were reopened to traffic at approximately 7:45 a.m. Friday, however delays remain significant on all bridges heading into Tampa.
