COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- Troopers are on the scene of a crash with reported fatality on Alligator Alley Wednesday.

All northbound lanes were blocked at mile marker 85, on one of the biggest travel days of the year, for a time, but around 1:40 p.m. one lane of traffic opened up.

The scene is located between the State Road 29 exit (#80) and the Collier Boulevard exit in Naples (#101).

Multiple emergency vehicles are on scene. No further details are available at this time.

Northbound drivers may want to consider exiting at State Road 29 and heading north towards Immokalee if heading towards Fort Myers, or south towards U.S. 41 if heading to Naples or Marco Island.
