LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A crash on Interstate 75 Tuesday morning involving a boat on the roadway was causing lane closures on the Caloosahatchee Bridge.

The crash happened around 8am in the southbound lanes of I-75 just past the Bayshore Road exit (#143).

A boat had fallen off the trailer and onto the roadway, and the trailer ended up leaning against the concrete wall of the bridge.

Another vehicle was also involved.

Two southbound lanes were blocked going south for about two hours.

**UPDATE (9:30AM)** -- All southbound lanes have fully reopened over the Caloosahatchee Bridge.
